Yes, however where an applicant requests Part C of the ill health application form be completed by a GP or Consultant medical specialist any charges or fees are the member's responsibility. NHS Pensions cannot pay any costs associated with the completion of your ill health application form.
 
Please note: Occupational Health doctors cannot claim a fee. Hospital doctors and consultants cannot claim a fee unless you are not their patient and you need a special examination or case note study. These restrictions are confirmed on the Consideration of entitlement to ill health retirement benefits (AW33E) and Consideration of entitlement for early payment of deferred benefits due to ill health (AW240) respectively.
