TEST RESULTS and FIT NOTES
(Fit Notes were previously known as Sick Notes)
If you are wanting to contact the Practice for test results or a Fit Notes please ring after 2:00pm. This will help keep out telephone lines free for patients requiring urgent attention.
Do you really need an appointment?
We are currently seeing a high demand from patients in relation to coughs, colds and sore throats. In many cases these can be treated without seeing a GP.
Before approaching the GP surgery we are asking all our patients to consider the following: -
- Can I deal with this myself?
- Have I looked online for help (nhs.uk)?
- Could my local pharmacist (chemist) help me?
