Noticeboard

We are following advice from NHS England that all patients must be triaged first before they can be seen. We are aware this has caused an increase in our phone traffic, we ask patients to be patient with us during this very busy time, or use the E-consult or Patient Access Service if they have access to the internet. 
Please think before you shout or abuse our staff, we are trying our best and do not tolerate abuse of any kind.

FLU - We are vaccinating patients on an appointment only basis, those who are in the at-risk categories will be actively encouraged to attend and the new over 50-64 co-hort will also be able to book in, depending on flu supplies. Please call the Practice to check if you can book in. 

COVID Vaccine - We are not able to offer this service currently, patients eligible will be contacted in due course. Please do not contact the Practice to book in, or for further details. This information will be shared once it is available. 

Sickness Certificates

You do not require a doctor's sickness certificate for any illness lasting seven days or less. Your employer may however require you to complete a self-certification form (SC2) which is available from your employer or on the HMRC website.

Evidence that you are sick

If you are sick for more than seven days, your employer can ask you to give them some form of medical evidence to support payment of SSP (statutory sick pay).

A medical certificate, now called a 'Statement of Fitness for Work’ (see below) from your doctor is evidence that you are ill and unable to work for a set period of time or in some cases fit to return to work with amended duties, altered hours, a phased returned to work or work place adaptations.

Dentist and hospital Doctors can also supply you with medical certificates for your employer. 

For more information on FIT NOTES see the DirectGov website (where this information was sourced).
