Appointments

Wherever possible we aim to offer you an appointment with  a GP within 2 working days. You may have to wait a little longer if you wish to see a GP of your choice.

You may also book an appointment more than 2 days in advance. We currently have appointments available up to 3 months in advance.

You can now book your Doctors appointments on line if you have registered your email address with the surgery.

If you are unable to attend an appointment with one of the doctors or nurses, please telephone us to let us know. By giving us as much notice as you can you are helping us to make sure that someone else is given your slot.

EMAIL CONSENT FORMS

Please note that patients need an individual email address in order to register for The Waiting Room our new online prescription ordering service.

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).

Your employer can ask you to confirm that you've been ill.You can do this by filling in a form yourself when you return to work. This is called self-certification.

If you're sick and off work for more than seven days, your employer will probably ask for proof of your illness. Most employers ask for a fit note from your GP.

However, this will also depend on your employer's company policy on sick leave (or sickness absence). This policy should tell you how many days you can be off sick before you need to provide proof of illness or a fit note.

You could also provide evidence from someone who is not a medical practitioner, e.g. a dentist. Your employer will decide whether or not this evidence is acceptable. If your employer has any doubts, they may still ask for a medical certificate from your GP.

Statement of Fitness for Work - ’Fit Note'

The 'fit note' was introduced on 6 April 2010. With your employer's support, the note will help you return to work sooner by providing more information about the effects of your illness or injury.
