Ordering Prescriptions On-Line

Mjog Text messaging Service

We now offer a text messaging service. This means that if we have your mobile phone number you will receive confirmation of any appointment booked at the surgery. You will then receive a reminder prior to the appointment. We may also contact you in this way to invite you to come in for an appointment e.g for a flu vaccination or a health check. If you do not to be contacted in this way then please let reception know.

All telephone calls will now be recorded. This is for training purposes only

With effect from 31st March you now have access to part of your Medical Records. You will need to complete our most up to date on-line application form. For more information about this service please ask at Reception.

Saturday Opening

The surgery is open every Saturday from 09.00 until 12.00  for GP Appointments. Some of these can be pre-booked with the remainder being available on the day for something which cannot wait until monday.  Nursing appointments are available on alternate Saturdays and can be pre-booked. Please call for an appointment. 

Supporting people with memory problems 

Every week there is a community meeting (The Forget-Me-Not club) in The Centenary Hall. If you care for someone who has memory problems we would be pleased to see you. Please let reception know if you are interested. We also need helpers/volunteers. 

 

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

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).

Your employer can ask you to confirm that you've been ill.You can do this by filling in a form yourself when you return to work. This is called self-certification.

If you're sick and off work for more than seven days, your employer will probably ask for proof of your illness. Most employers ask for a fit note from your GP.

However, this will also depend on your employer's company policy on sick leave (or sickness absence). This policy should tell you how many days you can be off sick before you need to provide proof of illness or a fit note.

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.
