If you would like a chaperone to be present at your consultation, please ask at reception.
If you are unable to attend work due to illness, a self-certification (SC1) should be used for the first 7 days (including weekends) of your illness. After these 7 days, you will need to see a Doctor to get a further sick note. SC1s are available from your employer.

To request any on-going sick notes you must either contact the surgery after 2pm on an afternoon or submit an eConsult.
To retrieve test results, please telephone the surgery after 2pm, allowing a couple of days so that the doctor or nurse has had time to look at your results.
Please note we are only able to disclose your results to you. If you want to nominate a family member or carer to be able to retrieve your results, we MUST have written consent from you. Please sign and date the document. We will then scan this information into your medical records (exceptions may apply)
Parents – please be aware – patients 16 years old or over must contact the surgery themselves to retrieve results. Due to our obligation in regards to patient confidentiality we are only permitted to discuss/disclose medical information with the patient if they are 16 years old or over (exceptions may apply).
Our Practice is a registered Research Practice and occasionally you may be asked to participate in a particular research project. No patient is obliged to take part in research and your permission will always be asked for.
