Medical Certificate Guidance For Patients

To try and reduce risk of infection we have taken the following steps - your co-operation and patience will be greatly appreciated

  • Telephone calls will be kept to a minimum to  facilitate the practice helping as many patients as possible.

  • Please answer our questions honestly. Fraudulent responses could put our GP's, nurses, staff and patients in the surgery building at risk with the possibility that the building will require shutdown.

  • All GP appointments offered will initially be via telephone consultation when your symptoms will be triaged by a clinician and appropriate decisions made regarding your care

  • Please consider the use of the econsult facility on the homepage wherever possible

  • The surgery will not issue private letters of 'vulnerability' for patients

  • There may be some delay on non urgent requests for information E.G non contractual private work
