The practice undertakes a variety of health promotion activities, including:
The practice has a strict policy regarding confidentiality and data protection. We will only release test results to the person to whom they relate unless that person has given prior permission or they are not capable of understanding the results.
When you attend for tests that have been requested by any member of the practice team, the phlebotomist will advise you to contact the surgery 10 days after to obtain the results. The reception team can give you results - only to say if they are normal or if there is any other instruction on the result by a doctor or nurse. They CANNOT advise on specific results.
For all tests undertaken on behalf of the hospital, the results will be advised by your consultant or a member of his/her team.
Results are normally received within 10 days. Please ring after 11:00am for your results.
Cervical smear results are usually received within 4-6 weeks, and you are automatically notified of your result.
The practice is working on producing personalised care plans for its most vulnerable patients, allowing these patients to be supported/cared for at home as far as possible . We will contact patients that we feel would benefit from such a service. If however you feel you or a relative/carer would benefit, please contact the surgery and we can discuss this with you.
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 on the HMRC website.
If 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).
Your employer can ask you to confirm that you've been ill.You can do this by filling in a form yourself when you return to work. This is called self-certification.
If you're sick and off work for more than seven days, your employer will probably ask for proof of your illness. Most employers ask for a fit note from your GP.
However, this will also depend on your employer's company policy on sick leave (or sickness absence). This policy should tell you how many days you can be off sick before you need to provide proof of illness or a fit note.
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.
The 'fit note' was introduced on 6 April 2010. With your employer's support, the note will help you return to work sooner by providing more information about the effects of your illness or injury.
