Self Help Advice - Lots of medical advice is available for many conditions. The practice has always used patient advice leaflets from www.patient.co.uk, which is a useful and up to date resource. This website also has mobile applications that can help you monitor your condition, or for other things like weight loss. Please view our 'Minor Illness' tab for more practical advice.
NHS England also has a website for self-care of long term conditions
Have you thought about asking your pharmacist before making an appointment? They are also a valuable source of help and advice, and recommended by NHS choices. Please consult this page for lots of practical advice for minor illness.
Free Prescriptions from your pharmacy WITHOUT seeing your doctor; consult the MINOR AILMENTS scheme.
Fit notes (Sickness Certification)
NHS services provide medical certification for your employer after one week of sickness absence. You do not need to contact your doctor for a certificate if you are off for less than a week, instead, you can get a Self-certificate from your employer, or download one here.
Stop Smoking Help and Advice
Did you know the BEST treatment for conditions like COPD is to stop smoking? So, no matter how many different inhalers, tablets and tests you have for COPD, the actual best treatment is something you can do yourself, perhaps with some help from the NHS Quit website or stop smoking clinic at the surgery. You can get a free Quit Kit by following the link.
Some services can be accessed directly without seeing your doctor.Examples are MIND, the mental health charity, Talking Changes (psychological counselling), Physiotherapy, Drug and Alcohol Services, Stonham housing support.
Meditation has been shown to help people stress less, focus more, and even sleep better. Headspace is meditation made simple. We'll teach you the life-changing skills of meditation and mindfulness in just a few minutes a day.
A wide range of minor surgical procedures can be carried out at the surgery, avoiding the need for referral to hospital.
As well as being refered by the doctor or nurse, you can refer yourself to smoking cessation clinic.
Some services provided are not covered under our contract with the NHS and, therefore, attract charges. Examples include the following:
- Medicals for pre-employment, sports and driving requirements (HGV, PSV etc.)
- Insurance claim forms
- Passport signing
- Prescriptions for taking medication abroad
- Private sick notes
- Vaccination certificates
The fees charged are based on the British Medical Association (BMA) suggested scales. Our reception staff will be happy to advise you about them, along with appointment availability.
In the unfortunate event that a person has passed away, there are three things that must be done in the first few days;
- Get a medical certificate from your GP or hospital doctor (this is necessary to register the death)
- Register the death within 5 days (8 days in Scotland). You will then receive the necessary documents for the funeral.
- Make the necessary funeral arrangements.
Register the death
If the death has been reported to the coroner (or Procurator Fiscal in Scotland) they must give permission before registering the death.
You can register the death if you are a relative, a witness to the death, a hospital administrator or the person making the arrangements with the funeral directors.
You can use the ‘Register a Death’ page on the gov.uk website that will guide you through the process. This will also explain the registration process for Scotland and Northern Ireland.
Arrange the funeral
The funeral can usually only take place after the death is registered. Most people use a funeral director, though you can arrange a funeral yourself.
Choose a funeral director who’s a member of one of the following:
These organisations have codes of practice - they must give you a price list when asked.
Arranging the funeral yourself
Contact the Cemeteries and Crematorium Department of your local council to arrange a funeral yourself.
Funeral costs can include:
- funeral director fees
- things the funeral director pays for on your behalf (called ‘disbursements’ or ‘third-party costs’), for example, crematorium or cemetery fees, or a newspaper announcement about the death
- local authority burial or cremation fees
Funeral directors may list all these costs in their quotes.
