Going back into Childminding and health declaration booklet

I'm interested to know what the usual rate is for asking your GP to fill out the mandatory health declaration booklet from Ofsted

The admin at my surgery has just quoted me £87.50.
I feel like I'm being fleeced, and I can't afford to be sad

Does the money go back into the NHS (I'd feel a lot better about it if it does) or does it go straight into the GP's pocket?

Others from my recent childminding course have been quoted around £20/£30

This Childminding malarky is costing an absolute bomb and not even started yet! I don't remember it being quite so expensive to start up a few years ago.

I hope it's worth it, financially...

shockshockshockshockshock omg that's a total rip-off! Is there any way you can get hold of a copy of this booklet, fill it in yourself and then just send it back for signature (which is presumably cheaper?!)

That's what I thought, total rip off.

I've already handed it over. I called the surgery today to see if was was ready yet and even the receptionist I spoke to thought it was steep!
