Medical Diet - School Meals Request Form

It has been brought to the attention of the LMC by our members, that GPs are receiving letters of request from Local Authority and school dietitians which are being requested to sign by a health professional, particularly around the start of a new term The LMC view is that these requests are not part of GMS services, hence the GP is within their rights to refuse to sign these forms.

We have attached a sample copy of the letter.

If the GP feels that they can sign the form then this type of work is non-contractual and attracts a fee.

The LMC would urge any GP challenged on this matter, to signpost the relevant person to the LMC.
