Hello

Welcome to JA.

The GP letter is sufficient to support your position given it has bee stamped and presumably signed by your local GP.

I suggest you notify the employer to contact the GP in the event they question the authenticity of the letter.

Alternatively please direct your employer to the NHS site below which clearly states letters from GP are sufficient too:
