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.

COVID Vaccine - We are contacting patients for their vaccines in line with Government guidance. Please be patient with the staff if they are unable to book you in, we have been assured there will be enough vaccines to off to all patients. 

Bank Holiday Closures - please note we will be closed on Friday 2nd April and re-open Tuesday the 6th April at 08.00am. Patients can call the Practice number to be diverted to the Ihub service, or call 11 if you need urgent medical advice. If you need help in an emergency, please call 999. 

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).
