Noticeboard

Apr-17: 252 people failed to attend their GP/nurse appointment!  This is equal to 42 hours of wasted appointments!  

With increased demand for GP and nursing services and very little extra funding to facilitate this rise, reducing the DNA (did not attend) rate could make a significant difference to appointment availability.  PLEASE...if you cannot make your appointment, let us know ASAP so we can offer it to someone else.

Employer 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.

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).

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