Cross Rd Surgery Coronavirus update in relation to current government guidance.
To all our Patients
We remain concerned about the effect of Covid-19 and, although we are pleased to see the restrictions relaxed, we are still mindful that rates of Covid in the community are very high. The demand on health care services remains significant as a result of staff sickness and patient need. So, we must prioritise the patients who are most vulnerable.
It is important that you continue to put your health first and seek urgent medical help when you need it.
You may have to wait longer than usual for a routine appointment and there may be a delay in accessing some non-urgent reviews. We are working very hard to get back to normal, so please be patient with our staff. We are very grateful for your understanding.
Please continue to wear a face mask if you enter the practice,
infection control guidance for GP surgeries remains the same and requires us to continue to take precautions.

Sick note/fit note information for patients
By law, medical evidence is not required for the first 7 days of sickness (that is, employees can self-certify). After 7 days, it is for the employer to determine what evidence they require, if any, from the employee. To make it easier for people to provide evidence to their employer that they need to stay at home, the NHS are developing an alternative form of evidence to the fit note. These will shortly be available through NHS 111 online.
