The Surgery provides the following services for all registered patients:
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.
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.

Patients can now cancel an appointment by TEXT message
We have a new TEXT messaging service whereby we can remind patients of their appointments and if no longer needed the patient can cancel by texting back CANCEL to us.
We can also send patients a TEXT reminder for a review or flu vaccination.
If we need to cancel your appointment we can also inform you by TEXT.
Texting relies on the practice having an up to date mobile telephone number. We would be grateful if you could let a receptionist know if you change your mobile number.
If you would like to OPT-OUT of this service then please let us know by contacting the practice on 0151 5115805.
If you require any vaccinations relating to foreign travel you need to complete a travel form, available from reception, and hand it back to Reception Team asap for the practice nurses attention who will them contact you to discuss and make an appoitment. Please ensure you do this in plenty of time before you travel. This will include which countries and areas within countries that you are visiting to determine what vaccinations are required.
There is further information about countries and vaccinations required on the links below
It is important to make this initial appointment as early as possible - at least 6 weeks before you travel - as a second appointment may be required with the practice nurse to actually receive the vaccinations. The Nurse will also give you important advice about looking after yourself whist on holiday or working abroad.
