Friends and Family Test


The FFT has been introduced to General Practice to allow patients who use GP services to have the opportunity to feedback on their experience.  It will provide a continuous feedback loop between our patients and the Practice and will be used to improve services.  The FFT is anonymous and has been kept as simple as possible.  The FFT must use standard wording and must include at least one follow-up question.  The results will be published in the Practice and will be forwarded to NHS England monthly.


                                  Help us to improve the services provided to and for you - tell us what you think; take the FFT.

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

Sickness CertificatesIf 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.
