My uncle is staying with me from overseas and needs to see a doctor (non urgent). I have been told by a colleague that there would be a charge of £50 for this. I was surprised by this and wondered if this is correct? Does anyone know of this?

Sounds about right.
I don't want to be rude, but why are you surprised?
-- answer removed --
you can register him at your gp, stating that he is your visitor for temprorary time,max 6 months i think.
How else would he pay for the service?
where is your uncle from? would a visit to a doctor in his country be free?
depending where he comes from it is probably right. I think the surgery can set their own rate, because it will be a private appt
