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

Please ask staff to issue the usual sick notes, NOT the GP's.

We do NOT do sick notes for suspected Covid.

Sick Notes do NOT need to be SIGNED. We will text them to you. You can print them or email them to your employer.

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.


Primary Care Networks

GP practices are working together with community, mental health, social care, pharmacy, hospital and voluntary services in their local areas in groups of practices known as primary care networks (PCNs). To find out more, click here and here. So far, being part of the PCN has allowed us to to have an in-house pharmacist, social prescriber, health coach and physiotherapist!



If you come to see your doctor or other health professional prepared and with realistic expectations, then you will get much more out of the 10 minute consultation. Below are some helpful pointers

  • Be clear on when your symptoms first started
  • Tell the doctor everything, you could be holding back vital information without realising
  • If you have multiple problems, you will need to book more than one appointment. This will give your GP the time to manage and treat each condition safely
  • Arrive on time for your appointment
  • If you feel you would like a chaperone in your appointment, let reception know when you check in
  • For Sick certificates, the first 7 days of sickness are covered with a Self Certification form which can be found here or collected from reception. After this runs out, you can request a certificate from the GP. For continuation sick notes, you can leave a message with reception. You will not necessarily need to be seen again.
