FLU VACCINATIONS 2018

We would like to advise our patients of the situation this year with FLU VACCINATIONS.

 

All our vaccinations are being supplied in batches and we are unlikely to have the numbers we need until the end of October. Because of this we have been unable to fix a date for our flu clinic, but we expect it to be early in November.

 

For this reason you will not receive your Flu Invite letter until late October, so we would ask that you did not phone the surgery in the meantime as we will be unable to give you a date for the flu clinic until it becomes clearer when our vaccinations will arrive.

 

Thank you for your patience.

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.
