CHANGES TO ORDERING PRESCITIONS BY EMAIL

PLEASE CLICK ON PRESCRIPTIONS SECTION ABOVE TO SEE HOW TO GO ABOUT ORDERING ONLINE AND OTHER METHODS.

CHANGE TO PROCEDURE FOR BOOKING ROUTINE APPOINTMENTS

From 1st December 2018 Appointments may be booked as follows:-

  • On-line from 6.00pm
  • By telephone from 9.00am

It will no longer be possible to book appointments in person at reception desk, this will end the unacceptable practice of having to queue outside in order to make an appointment.

Forms to register for online booking are available at reception.

Planned Extension to Quayside Medical Practice

Work will be ongoing from February 2018 - January 2019

During this time access to the car park maybe curtailed and you may need to allow extra time to find a suitable parking space.

The partners apologise for any inconvenience but the situation cannot be avoided while construction work is being carried out.

NEW ARRANGEMENTS FOR CAR PARK

WE REGRET THAT WE HAVE HAD TO SECURE THE SERVICES OF A CAR PARK MANAGEMENT COMPANY FOR OUR CAR PARK.

A CAMERA IS NOW INSTALLED TO RECORD THE NUMBER PLATE OF ALL VEHICLES ENTERING THE CAR PARK.

ANYONE WITH LEGITAMITE BUSINESS IN THE SURGERY MUST ENTER THEIR CAR REGISTRATION NUMBER ON 1 OF 2 IPADS LOCATED IN RECPTION AREA TO RECEIVE A PARKING PERMIT, ALSO IF SOMEONE IS WAITING FOR YOU IN THE CAR PARK THEIR REGISTRATION NUMBER MUST BE ENTERED ON 1 OF THE IPADS.

CAR NUMBER PLATES THAT ARE NOT VALIDATED WILL RECEIVE A PARKING FINE.

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

Sickness CertificatesIf 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 - ’Fit Note'

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.
