Medeconomics surveyed practices across the UK on the fees they charge for a number of travel-related services, including immunisations, fitness to travel, and cancellation claims.

The results of the survey have now been added to the GP Fees Database to help practices to benchmark the amount they are charging for these services.

Medeconomics received 502 responses to the survey, which was undertaken in June 2019. The majority of practices were in England.

The following fees have now been updated and are available to practices with a subscription to Medeconomics:
