"Charge for a medical professional to authorise my fitness to participate in an Otago class."

The application form for the Otago class asked a series of questions with Yes/No answers. I answered yes to diabetes and high blood pressure so I had to pass the application form to a medical professional to authorise my fitness to participate in the class. A Nurse Practitioner signed and dated the form. I was charged £20. NHS advice is for older people to keep fit and active. When I tried to get fit I was charged £20 which I resent. I am a Senior Citizen.
