Noticeboard

Please note that it is no longer mandatory for patients to wear a face mask or covering when on the practice premises however we are still have infection prevention and control measures in place therefore politely request that you wear a face mask. 

If you attend for an appointment your clinician will be wearing a face mask and may ask that you do the same. Our staff are also wearing face masks and we continue to undertake lateral flow tests to manage the risk of Covid-19 in the practice.

Thank you for your co-operation.

Fit for Work Certificates

You do not require a doctor's certificate for any illness lasting five working days (or 7 including a weekend). Your employer may however require you to complete a self-certification form (SC2) which is available from your employer or on the HMRC website.  You should refer to this link for more information

Evidence that you are sick

Sickness CertificatesIf 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).

It is up to your employer to decide whether you are incapable of work. A medical certificate, now called a 'Statement of Fitness for Work’ (see below) from your doctor is strong evidence that you are sick and would normally be accepted, unless there is evidence to prove otherwise.

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 Doctor.
