HELP US TO HELP YOU
Ask our receptionists for a login so that you can use our website to the full
 
1. Order repeat prescriptions on-line
You can order all your repeat medications without having to put pen to paper or find your last counterfoil!
2. Synchronise your medications
It is a good idea to help us to synchronise your medications by a one off adjustment of the number of tablets you order next time using the 'synchronise medication form'
  
3. Book appointments on-line.
You can book (and cancel) appointments for any of the doctors for up to 8 weeks ahead
This should help you ensure that you see the doctor who knows you best
  
4. Consider using telephone appointments
These are available for every doctor each time they consult. It works best if the doctor knows you and you don't think you will need to be examined. There may be leeway as to the time the doctor phones you so please keep you mobile on until you have received the call.
  
5. Keep us up to date with changes of address, mobile numbers and email
We are increasingly using these to remind you of appointments you have booked and when reviews or blood tests are
needed

ComplaintsCustomer service form

We make every effort to give the best service possible to everyone who attends our practice. However, we are aware that things can go wrong resulting in a patient feeling that they have a genuine cause for complaint. If this is so, we would wish for the matter to be settled as quickly, and as amicably, as possible.

To pursue a complaint please contact the practice manager who will deal with your concerns appropriately. Further written information is available regarding the complaints procedure from reception.

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

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 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.
