Noticeboard

Sickness Certificates

The first 7 days of sickness do not require a certificate from your GP. If your employer insists on a sickness form, complete a Self-Certification form, which can be found here


We do NOT do sick notes for suspected Coronavirus

Sick Notes do NOT need to be SIGNED. We will text them to you, as we do not want you to come to surgery to pick them up. You can print them or email them to your employer.

We are not allowed to write letters telling your employer that you should be allowed to work from home. That's your HR department's decision, based on what medical conditions you declare to them. If they don't believe you, we can write a letter confirming your medical problems for £30 in advance. We have been overwhelmed with such requests, understandably, and we cannot deal with them all.

Keep Your Details up to Date
Please do update your contact details ("Your Contact Details" box at the bottom of screen) with home & mobile & email. You will receive appointment reminders and occasional requests for information by text.

 

Budgets
Patients are quite rightly getting more and more frustrated at not getting what they want, when they want it! Please be assured that we are your advocates and we act in your best interests. But we do have to prescribe cost-effectively, and refer for medical reasons when we can't manage your problem, not simply for your peace of mind. You will not find a GP practice these days which will oblige your every wish without discussion!

 

Photo ID

You may be asked for a photo for our records. This reduces problems where patients are mistaken for each other when they consult another GP within the practice. PHONE CALLS may be recorded for your protection.

Cryotherapy/Wart/Minor Surgery Clinic

Appointments can be made at reception for Dr Healy after seeing a Doctor for diagnosis. The clinic treats viral warts and other minor skin lesions by using liquid nitrogen. She can treat a variety of skin lesions and cysts here at the surgery using local anaesthetic. We can also inject joints and perform surgery for ingrowing toenails. Please see a doctor if you wish to discuss these.

Immunisations

We provide all the immunisations required for residents in this country. Seasonal influenza vaccinations are given from September to December each year, and pneumonia (pneumococcal) vaccinations are given to over 65 years and other eligible at-risk groups. Teenagers are also called in for their booster immunizations. Flu Fraud Alert
