When does SSP apply?

The government is legislating for SSP to be paid from day 1, rather than day 4, of your absence from workif you are absent from work due to sickness or need to self-isolate caused by COVID-19. Once the legislation has been passed, this will apply retrospectively from 13 March. You should talk to your employer if you are eligible for SSP and need to claim.

Do I need a sick note?

From Friday 20 March onwards, those who have COVID-19 or are advised to self-isolate will be able to obtain an “isolation note” by visiting NHS 111 online and completing an online form, rather than visiting a doctor. For COVID-19 cases this replaces the usual need to provide a “fit note” after seven days of sickness absence. Isolation notes will also be accepted by Jobcentre Plus as evidence of your inability to attend.

Training Practice-GP Trainee

We have been approved as a training practice and a fully qualified doctor, known as a GP Trainee, will be employed by the practice for six to twelve months at a time during which time their training will be supervised by one of the partners. You may be offered appointments with the GP Trainee.

Medical Students

We have 5th year medical students visiting the practice who sit in with the doctors in surgery and also attend pre-arranged home visits. Such experience is a very valuable part of undergraduate training.

You will be informed beforehand if there are medical students present. If you do not wish students to be present during your consultation you will be seen alone. We appreciate your help.
