*Covid-19 - Important Information for Travellers

The Doctors at French Weir Health Centre have been receiving numerous requests from patients asking for letters of support as they are wishing to either cancel or amend their travel arrangements owing to the Covid-19 outbreak. We understand that this is often because patients are worried about having a pre-existing condition and so are concerned that they are more at risk from the virus, but the preparation of these letters is not covered by the NHS and as such they are therefore putting additional pressures on already stretched NHS services. 

If the Foreign & Commonwealth Office (FCO) has issued a travel restriction on a country or territory then insurers are normally obliged to pay out under the terms of the policy. If the local government has issued a travel ban on foreign tourists including those from the UK then the same applies. If someone chooses not to travel solely because they are concerned about a potential risk, the insurer will not compensate the traveller with or without a GP letter. It is of course possible that helplines are asking patients to speak to their GP just in case, but this is still true.

Owing to the FCO’s advice, French Weir Health Centre is currently declining all requests from patients for letters regarding amendments or cancellations to travel arrangements due to Covid-19. 

Please follow the link  for up-to-date FCO advice.

The preparation of these letters or reports is not covered by the NHS and the doctor must complete them during their own time. Please allow up to 14 working days for these requests to be completed.
