Initial Class 1 Medical Cost Increase

I previously undertook an initial C1M in November 2015 at Aviation House, which looking back at my records cost 344.00.

I'm now about to undergo another initial, however it appears the CAA have farmed this out to 3rd parties and I'm now looking at a bill of 696.00

I believe some of this cost is associated with drug & alcohol screening that has been introduced - however can anyone else advise how the cost has more than doubled?

For comparison, I've also applied for a New Zealand C1 Medical and have undertaken the initial examination, at a cost of around 350.00.

Sheeesh! My entire CPL IR only cost 1800.

Old people have to say things like that. But medicals were 3 quid. Just t'aint right.
