Test Results, Sick Certificates and Non NHS services

Sick Certificates

You only need a doctor’s note if you are unable to work and are ill for longer than seven calendar days. Your employer will provide you with an SC2 self-certificate form for shorter periods of illness or download the form from https://www.gov.uk/taking-sick-leave

 

Test Results

Since our telephones are very busy in the early morning, we ask you to telephone for test results (eg blood, urine, x-ray) between 11 and 12.30 each day. To ensure confidentiality, we only release results to the patient, unless alternative arrangements have been agreed in writing.

 

Non-NHS Services

The NHS does not pay for some of the services we provide. These include private sick notes, insurance forms, holiday cancellation forms, medical reports, fitness to travel certificates, private prescriptions, passport signing and some vaccination services. Our fees for these services, which are in line with BMA approved national guidelines, are displayed in the surgery.
