Letters: Exempt GPs over 65 from fees to lengthen their life

I am glad that the BMA showed concern at the plight of GP pensioners by battling with GMC to remove annual registration fees ('BMA may appeal High Court GMC fee ruling', Healthcare Republic, 6 October).

Part-time GPs aged over 65 years should be relieved from appraisal, indemnity subscription and GMC fees as mild professional activity increases longevity.

This should be implemented as a mark of respect to the senior citizens of this noble profession.
