Noticeboard


Cervical Screening (Smear Tests).  Due to a national shortage of the pots used to forward samples to the laboratory we are temporarily unable to book any more patients in for Cervical Screening.  We will announce on these pages when supply is resumed.  Please continue to check this website.

There will be no Baby and Child Immunisation Clinic on Tuesday 30 April

Temporary reduction in Nurse’s appointments

Due to staff shortages we regret we shall be reducing the number of appointments available with our Practice Nurses at both Morland Surgery and Holmwood Health Centre. This will affect our Travel Clinics especially and you may be directed to a travel health clinic elsewhere.

Boots and Superdrug offer this service in their larger stores and other providers are available.

We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause and hope to resume our normal service as soon as possible.

Sickness Certificates (Fit Notes)

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

Evidence that you are sick

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.

Statement of Fitness for Work - ’Fit Note' sometimes called a "sick note"

If you are off sick for more than seven days in a row (including non-working days) you must give your employee a doctors Fit Note.

If you need a further Fit Note (Sick Note) please complete this form and return to either surgery.

You do not need to see your doctor again to be signed fit to go back to work.
