Important Information

Your Named Doctor

All patients are automatically registered with Mytton Oak Medical Practice. As part of a government initiative patients have also now been allocated to a named accountable GP. It is important to note that patients are still free to see whichever GP they choose, however any incoming post or results will normally be reviewed by your named GP who will have overall responsibility for your care. If you would like to know who your allocated named GP is then please speak to any member of staff when you next attend the practice or alternatively ask at reception.

Online Access to Records

It is  possible for Patients to book, amend and cancel appointments and to order repeat prescriptions online. It is also possible for patients to view their medical records, including test results online. Please contact the surgery for details.

 Flu

Many people are entitled to an annual flu vaccination free from the NHS. These include people with long term health condition, carers, pregnant women, young children and anyone over 65. To check your eligibility or to book an appointment for your vaccination, please contact Reception.

We will be holding flu clinics on:

Saturday 7th October

Saturday 21st October

Saturday 4th November

Please telephone Reception to make an appointment. If none of these dates are convenient, we will accommodate you during the week.

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.

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.
