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.


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.

Regardless of how you were brought up,  as an adult one has to work at being of Healthy Mind in order to deal with life's problems as they arrive.
Relationships with partners,  family,  friends, work colleagues and bosses are important in everyday life, and need time and effort.
A spiritual life really helps a lot of people, and being in touch with your soul can help you out through life's trials. Many people who were never in touch with their inner self have discovered a whole new self to help them make sense of this world.

It's all too easy to be overcome by the pressures of modern life. Paying bills. Spending more than one earns. Unrealistic expectations. But it's important to take a step back and spend some time with a self help book which might change your life, if you are open to it! Remember, being stressed not only makes for a miserable life, but also for blood pressure and heart disease!

Working at being well-balanced takes effort, time and an openness to changing negative ways of thinking. Anyone can do it, but not everybody can be bothered.

This is a natural part of life. It is painful, very painful.  It is only because we care about someone that we miss them and feel sad. There are stages of 'normal' bereavement to go through when someone close dies. It is important that one allows oneself to go through these natural stages of grief.
Help  is available.  Sometimes problems occur when the proper stages are not gone through.
