Appointments update

We now offer web bookable appointments for blood tests (phlebotomy), INR (warfarin monitoring) and smears (well woman clinics). These should be booked only when a doctor or nurse has requested you have one of these tests or if your smear is due. We will soon be offering web bookable appointments for the pre-school booster vaccination for children.

In November 2018- 158 appointments were not attended. This is 26 hours of 10 min appointments. There is high pressure for appointments and this is one of the causes as the non attender then rebooks. Please ensure you let the surgery know if you cannot attend so that another patient can use the appointment.


Many common illnesses can be treated at home. Ask your pharmacist for advice on the best medicines and treatments for minor ailments. To find your local pharmacy and its opening times - many are open late into the evening - see www.nhs.uk or call 111. For further information see the "Self help" and "Where to go for NHS care" links on this page.

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.
