What was the form?

Ive never heard of that?

I thought theyve been doing this for ages? If its like a doctors note type thing. When my brother was about 14 (I think) he broke his arm and needed 'a form' to say he had done so and been to hospital to get it sorted so he could claim on his insurance, they charged for that and that was almost 10 years ago (if I have his age at the time right)

If thats the case then I was ripped off as I was attacked as a teenager and had to pay over a grand in police and hospital fees as I think they charged about £300 for the information.

Its quite common practice these days to charge for such things, particularly in Foundation Trusts. I'm sure you'll be able to claim much more than £10 back through your insurance??

dont know about your circumstances but my brothers arm was broken playing rugby, he had private health insurance so any fees would have been covered by them (if there were indeed any). The only time I have known about money regarding the police is another time my brother was hit by a brick thrown at him and actually recieved 1k in police compensation.....never heard of having to pay 'police fees', legal fees would be something different and you having to pay for them would infer it was your fault so guess you arent meaning that :whistling:

Not sure what it was because I was at school at the time so my parents dealt with it, all I know was it was supposed to be compensation as I have to suffer from arthritis from the arm for the rest of my life and we had to pay for a police report, a doctors letter, a hospital letter etc as they said a normal doctors note wasnt enough, I cant remember that far back though and this was about 12 years ago and in Scotland so probably different.

It is free if you need it for an employer but they charge £10-£20 for writing a letter to "Whom it may concern".

Doctors can make a charge for all non NHS work. Letters / notes requested by insurance etc are classed as non NHS. They can charge anything from £5 to 40 for these.

Most health centres have a list up which lists the costs, if not ask for it.
