Do you need a certificate for fitness to travel?

There are three kinds of certificates for travel:

1) Certificates you require for some vaccines to enter in to particular country/area. Such as Yellow Fever and Meningitis ACWY. In this case its free of charge in our Travel clinic.

2) Sometime your employer ask you to get a certificate, if you are fit for travel. Normally they pay for it.
Either your employer want to know that you are covered for your vaccines for your business trip or to make sure that you are fit for travel. In other sense they want to know if doctor can certify that nothing will happen to you, while you are on business trip abroad.

Please read below from BMA..

55. Are doctors required to complete fitness certificates e.g. fitness to travel or for sporting activities?

GPs are increasingly being approached to complete an array of certificates for medico-legal reasons. The completion of fitness certificates raises concern because even if a thorough history, examination and any necessary investigations are carried out, doctors are still not in a position to guarantee that a patient is fit for a particular activity. The BMA discourages doctors from signing certificates which indicate that the patient will, for example, be fit for the duration of the holiday, as current fitness is not a guide to future fitness. Doctors can only report on what is written in the patient notes, and reporting on future fitness could have medico-legal consequences for the doctor. The Association would therefore advise that if certificates are provided they should include words to the effect that ’based on information available in the medical notes, the patient appears to be fit to travel’. Fitness certificates fall outside a GPs NHS Terms and Conditions and doctors can charge at their own rate for undertaking the work.

If this is the case, then you need a proper consultation with doctor, which involves history taking, examination and advice. This will cost you £200, it also involves providing certificate saying, “based on information available and medical examination, the patient appears to be fit to travel’

If you need any investigations, it costs you more.

3) If you want a certificate as an evidence regarding your vaccines. eg what vaccines you had, or how many courses and when. It will cost you nothing. Its free. We can only mention about vaccines you have from us.
