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.

Alcoholics Anonymous

Kids tend to copy their parents behaviour (if it suits them!) and can learn irresponsible behaviour   and also coping strategies (that is, that a drink is the best way to deal with stress/problems!).

Young Adults binge drink: they walk into cars, get into fights and get STI's/pregnant.


There is no place for drugs in society.

Some people will find this statement funny or old fashioned.

But 20 years in practice has shown me that people who abuse Cocaine nearly always have a brush with the Law.

Some youngsters who take Ecstasy have sudden cardiac deaths.
And they go usually down a certain path in life; abusive relationships, unstable families, dead-end jobs or no jobs at all.
Encourage your children to be responsible: they'll have a better more stable life, with less highs/lows.
