With regard to COVID recovery or fit to fly letters, we regret that we are unable to provide these letters but there are a range of private providers who are able to help with this. There are two main reasons that we have had to make this decision. Firstly, we are only able to state that someone is “recovered” from COVID after carrying out an assessment, this is a restriction of our medical registration and indemnity. We have no facilities to arrange coronavirus testing and no capacity to offer appointments for this purpose. Secondly, we are working flat out to provide patient care, which is still at very high demand.
COVID recovery letters are needed for travel purposes, not health, and as such are not an NHS service. We hope you will understand why we are not currently in a position to offer this private service.
We would suggest you contact your airline who should be able to direct you to private providers who can undertake this work for you: www.fitfortravel.nhs.uk/advice/disease-prevention-advice/covid-19-health-considerations-for-travel/coronavirus-covid-19-frequently-asked-questions
