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!




Scill Centre  rights

Though strictly not a mental health problem, Learning Disability and Memory problems (including Dementia) are dealt with below.

Memory Problems <50yrs
Often, people come to us worried that their memory is getting worse. Most of the time, they are just panicing. Memory for certain things does deteriorate. Sometimes fatigue or depression or recreational drugs or alcohol can cause memory problems temporarily. Do always come and see the doctor.
Memory, like muscles, needs exercise. Lots of people do Sukudo or crosswords. A good book about keeping memory exercised.

Memory Problems >50yrs
Again, mostly age-related. One needs to exercise one's memory. Reading and TV just won't do it! But do come and see the GP. Sometimes an underactive thyroid can be the cause. We can always refer you to Sutton hospital for an assessment if it is appropriate, to check for Early Dementia.

There is lots of help out there. It is stressful being a carer too. Financial
