Since our telephones are very busy in the early morning, we ask you to telephone for test results (eg blood, urine, x-ray) after 11 am. To ensure confidentiality, we only release results to the patient, unless alternative arrangements have been agreed in writing, with the exception of young children.
You only need a doctor’s note if you are unable to work and are ill for longer than seven calendar days. Your employer will provide you with an SC2 self-certificate form for shorter periods of illness.
The NHS does not pay for some of the services we provide. These include private sick notes, insurance forms, holiday cancellation forms, medical reports, fitness to travel certificates, passport signing, HGV and other driving medicals and some vaccination services. Our fees for these services are displayed in the waiting room.
