Charity Fundraiser! Week commencing 10th to the 16th June was Cervical Cancer Awareness week with "Jo's Cervical Cancer Trust" - We enjoyed supporting this important cause at the practice and there are some pictures below. Events included guessing the name of the Teddy Bear which was guessed correctly and won by Dr Naheema Javed and also guessing the number of sweets in the jar contest which was won by Teddy a very happy little boy who had to wait until he returned from holiday to find out the good news! 

Thanks to all who donated and took part - a grand total of £140 was raised which is all down to the kindness of staff and patients who took part.

Sickness Certificatestemperature.jpg

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).

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.
