Please note that the GP will not usually issue you with a fit/sick note unless you have been off work for more than 7 days. For the first 7 days your employer should be able to provide you with a 'self certificate'.

We have recently reviewed our process for “sick lines” – now known as Fit Notes.

If a Fit Note is to be issued, it is important that it is done in a proper appointment so that the GP can carry out a full assessment of your care.

If you think you may need another Fit Note, please book a follow-up appointment with your usual GP. This can be either a bookable telephone appointment or a face-to-face appointment in the surgery. Please phone in advance.

If you require any vaccinations relating to foreign travel you need to make an appointment with the practice nurse to discuss your travel arrangements.  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

 

Europe Europe & RussiaNorth America North America
Central America Central Americaindia South America
egypt Carribeanlithuania Africa
bulgaria Middle Eastpoland Central Asia
china East Asiachina Australasia and Pacific

 

It is important to make this initial appointment as early as possible  - at least 6 weeks before you travel - as a second appointment will be required with the practice nurse to actually receive the vaccinations.  These vaccines have to be ordered as they are not a stock vaccine.  Your second appointment needs to be at least 2 weeks before you travel to allow the vaccines to work.

Some vaccines are not supplied by NHS and have to be ordered on a private prescription and these incur a charge over and above the normal prescription charge.  This is because not all travel vaccinations are included in the services provided by the NHS.
