Clinics and Services

What we can offer you

Our nurses and healthcare assistants are trained to provide a wide range of services to patients. They work closely with the GP’s and manage many areas including; Asthma, COPD, Diabetes, Coronary Heart Disease and Hypertension. They deal with Contraception, ECG’s, Vaccinations and Weight management. They also handle minor illnesses, minor injuries and sexual health. When assessing your needs you will be directed to the most appropriate person within the practice.

Antenatal

This clinic is run by midwives from the Norfolk and Norwich Hospital. If you become pregnant you will be given a “booking appointment” at which the midwife will ask you a few questions and carry out some general health checks. You will be seen regularly throughout your pregnancy either at the practice or at the local hospital or both.

Sick Notes

During the first seven days of incapacity or illness patients will need to complete a ‘self certificate’. The form is SC2 which is given to your employer. The form SC1 for the unemployed or self-employed is sent to the Jobcentre or Social Security office. After the seven day period a medical certificate is required from the GP confirming that the GP advises you to refrain from work.

Form SC2 s available from your employer or online at www.hmrc.gov/forms/sc2.pdf

Form SC1 is available from the Jobcentre or Social Security office or online at www.dwp.gov/advisers/claimforms/sc1_print.pdf

If your employer requests a medical certificate for absences of 7 days or less then this is provided as a private service and is subject to a charge. Details available from reception.
