GPs told to stop charging patients with a mental illness for debt support forms

21 February 2019 – Independent

GPs in England are being told they can no longer charge a fee for paperwork to help people with mental health problems who are being pursued by creditors or debt collectors to access support.

The British Medical Association (BMA) has committed to ending charges for mental health debt forms, which can be requested as evidence by creditors when someone is in arrears and struggling to pay.
