If you are off from work 1 or 2 days you do not need any certificate.
If off from 3 to 6 days you should fill out a “self certificate” form. You do not need a certificate from the doctor. If your company insists on a certificate your doctor will probably charge for providing one (see charges).
If you are away from work for 7 days or more you will need a doctors certificate. To complete one of these your doctor will most likely need to see you. If you have been in hospital then the hospital doctor should have given you all the certificates you need. If they have not, your GP will need at least a letter from the hospital before he/she can issue a certificate without seeing you. Before you return to work, you should have a certificate with a “return to work” date on it.
If you have had tests preformed at the practice, the results usually return in a few days. Your doctor or nurse will probably have explained how long it will take, and how you can get the result. All result are seen by your own doctor and any comments about them passed to reception. You should ring for results later in the day (between 11 and 4 please) and reception will pass on the doctors message. Reception will not be able to explain the significance of results – you will need to speak to the doctor or nurse who requested the tests originally.
|Routine blood test||2 days|
|Unusual blood test||7-10 days|
|Urine test||3 days|
Results of tests preformed in hospital are sent to the hospital doctors who requested them. They are unlikely to be sent to the practice unless specifically requested.
