    i used to use lloyds when i was just doing the county test and they didnt require doctor / nurse signature or practice stamps on the test certificate / letter. i suppose i was unsure they / the fa would accept a test that didn't quite match their requirements

    my GP hasnt charged me the last 3 seasons, though they did just charge my Mrs for a 'fit to fly' letter as she's pregnant.

    But the person doing to BP check at a Lloyds pharmacy isn't a medical practitioner as required by the FA, so you risk the person running the test refusing to accept it. I saw this happen one year where a referee had got his form stamped by the manager at his gym. The argument was it must be a doctor or a practice nurse.

    It says on the form gp, practice nurse or similar proffession so it is left to interpretation on the similar proffession. I think most would accept unless being a bit busy. Tbh I will be changing doctors as this is just a final straw in a long list of issues my wife and I have with them so hopefully the new docs wont charge next year. That said if they so then I'll just pay it. Its half a match fee so its not a biggy. Just annoyed that some are charging and others arent.. lack of consistency - its like Last weeks ref except last years nurse.

    I'm on the north west combined counties pool. So Cheshire/Cheshire West/Liverpool/Manchester league and assistant on northwest counties. From what I hear there will be a lot of assisting.
