Professional Fees Committee

Last updated:

Overview of the Professional Fees Committee (PFC)

The PFC negotiates a range of fees to cover part-time medical service work, local and central government work, medico-legal work, insurance work and a wide range of reports, examinations and certificates for patients or third parties on an annual basis.


Our priorities

The PFC has worked closely with the Home Office and the GPC in drafting updated guidance for GPs on firearms licencing, which has now been issued to LMCs.

The committee is currently working on a range of issues that apply to doctors across the profession, including personal independence payment claims, collaborative fees, and death certification.


Who we are


The PFC chair is Peter Holden.
