College urges patients not to contact their GP for Covid-19 holiday cancellation letters Publication date: 27 February 2020
The RCGP has heard reports of insurers and travel companies requesting GP letters in order for people to cancel holidays due to Covid-19, Professor Martin Marshall, Chair of the Royal College of GPs, said:
"Insurers and travel companies should be basing their decisions to offer refunds on advice from the Foreign and Commonwealth Office and Public Health England, not letters from GPs. It is not a good use of GPs' time to be writing letters for patients who are not ill but have plans to travel - and GPs will always base their decisions on official advice.
"Patients will undoubtedly have good and sensible reasons for not wanting to travel to certain places because of Covid-19, but this is not the same as being unable to travel due to existing illness, and it should not become the GP's responsibility to give patients advice about where not to travel."
Please take the time to cancel your appointment if you can not attend. We have on average 250 patients per month who do not attend their appointments or fail to answer their telephone when they have asked for the GP or Practice Nurse to call them back. GP time is precious so please consider others if you can not attend.
