Apparently my doctor does charge but my MW did one for me for free (GP ignored my request too!).

Kind of torn on this one tbh - it's not exactly medically essential work so I can see why they'd charge for it.

I didn't have to pay for one.

I did!! I guess it depends how nice your doctors are!

In my last pregnancy both my consultant and my MW did me fit to fly letters. Neither charged.
