Noticeboard

Important Update to Old Trafford Medical Practice:

On Thursday 12th July we will be changing our clinical system from TPP SystmOne to Emis. From Thursday 5th July we will switch off our access to online services such as online appointment booking and online requests for prescriptions. 

No prescriptions will be issued on Thursday 12th July. Please ensure you allow for this when ordering your medications.

All prescriptions will be paper prescriptions from the period Thursday 5th July until at least our go live day of Thursday 12th July.

On Thursday 12th July we will close at 1pm and re-open on Friday 13th July at 8am. 

On the morning of Thursday 12th July we will only be offering same day appointments.

Our team will have received full training for this new system, however your patience would be gratefully appreciated during this transitional period.

Sickness Certificates

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).

Your employer can ask you to confirm that you've been ill.You can do this by filling in a form yourself when you return to work. This is called self-certification.

If you're sick and off work for more than seven days, your employer will probably ask for proof of your illness. Most employers ask for a fit note from your GP.

However, this will also depend on your employer's company policy on sick leave (or sickness absence). This policy should tell you how many days you can be off sick before you need to provide proof of illness or a fit note.

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.
