Noticeboard

We are sorry to inform you that Dr Marcus Sanzeri will be retiring from the practice on 31st March 2022. He has been delivering service to our patients for over 20 years and has been a very big part of this practice.


All the staff have really enjoyed working with him over the years and there will be a lot of patients who will really miss him as we will.


We are sure that all the patients, like us, would like to wish  Dr Sanzeri all the very best in his retirement.

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 the link below. 

Self Certification Form

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). Please note that we can only offer the next available appointment for a sick note and not an emergency appointment.

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.
