All requests to see, or speak to, a GP or Nurse Practitioner are to be made by completing an online triage form. Any patient who does not have access to the internet or has difficulty will be able to contact our reception team who will complete the form on the patients behalf.
Please see our Online Triage page for further information.
Fit Notes (also known as Sick Notes)
If you’re off work sick for 7 days or less, your employer should not ask for medical evidence that you’ve been ill. Instead they 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. Please follow this link for further information: Employee’s statement of sickness to claim Statutory Sick Pay – GOV.UK (www.gov.uk)
If you’re off work sick for more than 7 days, your employer will usually ask for a fit note (or Statement of Fitness for Work) from a GP or hospital doctor. Fit notes are sometimes referred to as medical statements or a doctor’s note. The Online Triage form can be used to request a fit note.
All clinical rooms in our Practice are readily accessible to patients in wheelchairs and the patients’ toilets are designed to accommodate those with disabilities. Please ask for any assistance you may need.
