Fitness for Sporting Medicals
Due to the complexities and wide variety of requirements for fitness notes for activities, and because this is not an NHS service, the decision as to whether we can provide you with confirmation of fitness will be made by your GP.
The GP will assess the request in order to determine whether it can be done here at the surgery and also, dependent on the amount of work it takes, the fee that this will incur. This assessment will take up to 14 days from when it is handed in. If the GP is happy to proceed, please allow a further 14 days for the paperwork to be completed.
If we are unable to deal with your request, or you need this completed sooner than the 28 day service we offer, we may be able to signpost you to an alternative option.
There are a number of services the surgery is unable to provide, these include:
- Concessionary bus pass forms
- Visa medical examinations
- Blue badge application forms
For services such as these, independent health professionals should undertake assessments in place of GPs.
