Fitness to Fly in Pregnancy Certificates Policy




The surgery is not able to supply certificates for fitness to fly in pregnancy.

As GPs, we are no longer involved in routine antenatal care and do not have access to antenatal care records. As a result we do not have  the information required to complete such certificates.

Under our local Maidstone and Tunbridge Wells NHS Trust’s current policy, the midwifery team do not recommend flying while pregnant and will not issue Fit to Fly Certificates.   

Please contact your midwifery team for further advice.

For more information please visit the The Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists (RCOG) website using the below link.
