Specialist Physiotherapist Role
Guidance for patients
The Specialist Physiotherapist:
Is more experienced than a GP in managing orthopaedic problems
If the physiotherapist advises that a prescription is appropriate, they will request this via a GP or practice pharmacist at the end of surgery.
Fit notes (Med3)
If it is appropriate for a Med3 to be issued, the request will be processed at the end of surgery.
Our Pharmacist works as part of the practice team to resolve day-to-day medicine issues and consult with and treat patients directly.
The role of the clinical pharmacist includes:
You can book a face to face or telephone appointment with the pharmacist if you would like any information regarding your current medications.
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.
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).
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.
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.

Travel Vaccination help and QuestionnaireTo help us offer the appropriate advice, please fill out the online form before coming to see the nurse.
If you require any vaccinations relating to foreign travel you need to make an appointment with the practice nurse to discuss your travel arrangements. This will include which countries and areas within countries that you are visiting to determine what vaccinations are required.
There is further information about countries and vaccinations required on the links below
It is important to make this initial appointment as early as possible - at least 6 weeks before you travel - as a second appointment will be required with the practice nurse to actually receive the vaccinations. These vaccines have to be ordered as they are not a stock vaccine. Your second appointment needs to be at least 2 weeks before you travel to allow the vaccines to work.
Some travel vaccines are ordered on a private prescription and these incur a charge over and above the normal prescription charge. This is because not all travel vaccinations are included in the services provided by the NHS.
