Flu Clinic

There is a walk in clinic from 9.00 - 12.00 on Saturday 23rd September for all eligible patients from either our Roebuck or Guestling surgery.

If you require a flu jab and are not able to attend this clinic, please contact the surgery for an appointment.

New Patient Registrations

Due to the close supervision order for Dr A Chopra, we are no longer accepting new patients onto our list. This is so that we can continue to offer the same high standards of care to our existing patients. We have agreed our position with the Hastings & Rother Clinical Commissioning Group. If you are a registered patient and have a new baby they will continue to be accepted on to the practice list in the usual way. Please see the latest news section for further details.

Our latest CQC report can be viewed here: CQC Inspection 16/05/2017

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.
