Hi we have planned to take my dad on holiday to turkey in october. He has copd, and I never thought about how he would manage flying. The flights are already booked, so theres nothing we can do about them, but we need to pay for the hotel in a weeks time. We have been to the GP who said that he needs a fit to fly assessment. The Gp has contacted him today and said they wont do it until 6 weeks before we go. So do we throw good money after bad and pay the hotel aswell and chance loosing the lot if he can't go? He is talking about paying to have it done privately. Does anyone know if thats an option please?
