New Rules regarding Statutory Sick Pay

The New Government guidance states-

“If an employee goes off sick on or after 10 December 2021, up to and including 26 January 2022, you cannot ask them for proof of sickness until they have been off for 28 days or more.”

This change takes effect from 17 December, but applies to absences beginning on or after 10 December 2021, up to and including absences which begin on or before 26 January 2022. The self-certification period will revert to seven days for absences beginning on or after 27 January 2022.

Our appointments are changing

From the 5th July 2021 the practice will move from an “on the day” appointment system to a “bookable telephone appointment system”

If the GP feels that a face to face review is required this will be arranged following the telephone consultation with the GP, Face to Face GP appointments are 10 minutes duration.

When calling the practice, the reception staff will ask for some details about your problem this is to ensure that you receive the right care, first time and as efficiently as possible.

If you are given a telephone appointment the following points should be noted:-

  • If you have multiple problems please book a double telephone appointment.
  • If your telephone appointment is to discuss a skin condition ensure you email any photos when booking appointment. The receptionist will give you the email address.

Please do not contact your GP Practice to ask for a Covid vaccination passport or status certificate – they will not be able to provide any standard document. International certification standards have not yet been agreed.  The Scottish Government is working to support the re-opening of international travel once it is safe to do so. We are working with the other UK Nations and with the World Health Organisation to agree on potential future COVID certification requirements for international travel. 

A technical solution is being developed that could allow people to access their Covid vaccination status directly.
