Please see below a letter we have received from the Cornwall & Isles of Scilly Local Medical Committee regarding letters from GP's for benefits.
Benefits Reform – GP letters
Cornwall & IoS Local Medical Committee (LMC) is the representative body for all GPs in Cornwall & Isles of Scilly. This letter has been produced by the LMC for use by GP practices.
The Benefits System is undergoing major changes and this is impacting on many people across the country in the amount of money they receive and also the benefits they may be eligible for.
GP’s provide General Medical Services to their patients and we are not in a position to administer nor to police the Benefits System. The LMC considers that it is not appropriate for the GP to be asked for letters of support or a letter to confirm care needs. GPs are not resourced to provide this service. Time taken up with paperwork is time taken away from direct patient care. There are contractual and agreed methods for GPs to provide medical information to the Department for Work and Pensions. These are sent to the GP practice and GP’s respond directly to the departments requesting information. Therefore we cannot respond to your request for a letter.
Please show this document to the service who has asked for the GP letter.
For more information the service can contact:
Cornwall& LoS LMC, Office B314
Victoria Beacon Place
In practice we have in the past provided such letters and these have not been taken into consideration. You are welcome to pay for a letter but we cannot guarantee it will make any difference.
