Hi, I've recently been accepted onto a PGCE course and as part of this am having to go through the dreaded process of getting my medical form signed by a GP. I was initially by the university that this would cost me around £20.00, but having dropped my form off at the local surgery I've been told that they charge £50.00 for the privilege of signing the thing! I'm in the process of trying to explain to them that although it's not an NHS service, it's (a) extortionate (b) unreasonable and (c) not accessible to less well-off students who simply don't have £50.00 for paperwork. Has anybody else found that their GP is charging a slightly frightening amount, or has this become the norm? Thanks!
