You do not require a doctor’s sickness certificate for any illness lasting seven days or less. 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). More information is available on the Gov.uk website.
Appointments may be arranged with a practice nurse.
We operate a recall system for cervical smear tests at the recommended intervals and provide ‘Well Woman’ checks on request.
You can now see a specialist FCP physiotherapist instead of the GP for face-to-face assessment of musculoskeletal problems (IE spines/joints/soft-tissues/some nerve issues). This gives you fast access to expert diagnosis and a treatment plan to move things forward. When necessary, FCP’s can arrange prescriptions for pain-relief, investigations to aid diagnosis and onward referral to other services if required.
The practice benefits from the services of a Sue Ryder Nurse Specialist. Please contact: Manorlands Hospice, 01535 642308
