Routine Appointments

(01383) 731721 or 742760

The surgery is open from 8.10am until 6.00pm, Monday to Friday. Doctors consult by appointment only during these hours. ALL consultations with doctors or nurses are by appointment only via reception - Telephone 731721 and wait for options or direct to appointments on 742760

You may consult any of the doctors in the Practice, but if a problem is continuing, it is often better to stay with the Doctor who knows about the problem.

Four of our doctors are part-time which may mean that you would have to wait a little longer for an appointment with one of these GPs.

If for any reason you are unable to attend your appointment please let us know in advance so that we can offer the time to another patient.

Sickness Certificates

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).

It is up to your employer to decide whether you are incapable of work. A medical certificate, now called a 'Statement of Fitness for Work’ (see below) from your doctor is strong evidence that you are sick and would normally be accepted, unless there is evidence to prove otherwise.

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:   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.
