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!



Vitamin D deficiency

Vitamin D deficiency is very common  and lowers Immune defences (especially to Covid!) and causes muscle aches/fatigue.
Black & Asian people are more likely to have VitD deficiency. We don't measure it.

Patients are to buy their own vitamin D over the counter at the pharmacy or some bigger supermarkets, they shouldn't be too expensive. We DO NOT prescribe it.

Discuss doses with pharmacist. 

For adults, a winter boost of 1000iu (international units) of Vitamin D daily for 2months will make sure you're topped up. (or 2,000iu for 1month)

Patients with slow kidneys or kidney stones should discuss with GP first.
