COVID-19 SICKNOTES for SELF-ISOLATION - You do not need a sick note for the first 7 days of sickness. After 7 days if your employer insists on evidence to cover self-isolation or household isolation DO NOT call the surgery, please go to https://111.nhs.uk/covid-19 or the NHS website https://www.nhs.uk/conditions/coronavirus-covid-19/self-isolation-advice/
Please TELEPHONE the surgery if you have any other pressing medical concerns. Please use Patient Access to order prescriptions (these will not be processed if ordered early) or post through our locked Surgery front door.
