Doctors are trustworthy, pillars of the community and this is part of their remit.

 

GeoKou, call your doctors and ask them, they will arrange a suitable time for your doctor to do this for you.

 

Does this include Dr Shipman?

Your GP will normally do this for a small fee.

 

Do you not have a job / go to uni / job centre? Anyone from any of these would be able to do this for you

 

At the job centre they have to be Band C or above, not just anyone can sign them.

How do you think he managed to carry it off for so long?

 

Oh look - Shipman was evil therefore all doctors are evil....

OP.The advice you have been given from all the posters on here is wrong.All you need is someone who knows you and holds a valid uk passport.You do not need a proffesional.All they are doing is verifying that you are the person in the photo, before they counter sign it.
