Telephone Consultations: If you think your problem can be dealt with on the phone, or your problem develops after 10.30am and you cannot wait to be seen in the Walk in Clinic the next day, please phone the reception give them your number and they will get a doctor to call you back to give you advice regarding your condition. The doc-tor can either give you advice over the phone, arrange for you to be seen at the surgery that afternoon or if you are normally housebound, arrange for a home visit.
Whilst we encourage our patients to come to the surgery, where we have the proper equipment and facilities available, we do appreciate this is not always possible. In this respect, if you do need a home visit, you can help us by calling reception as early in the morning as possible.You may only request a home visit if you are house bound or are too ill to visit the practice. Your GP will only visit you at home if they think that your medical condition requires it and will also decide how urgently a visit is needed. Please bear this in mind and be prepared to provide suitable details to enable the doctor to schedule house callsYou can also be visited at home by a community nurse if you are referred by your GP. You should also be visited at home by a health visitor if you have recently had a baby or if you are newly registered with a GP and have a child under five years.
Chaperones are available on request during consultations. A chaperone is a person whose role is to witness a patient and medical practitioner and to safeguard both parties during an intimate examination. We have both male and female GPs but if you require a chaperone during your consultation then please do not hesitate to ask reception staff or the clinical staff
At Lambeth Walk Group Practice we might have patients which have a language problem in communicating with our clinical staff during consultations.
So there is a service which is provided by the Community Health South London NHS trust for us to use, just call the telephone number on the leaflet provided or the book kept on the reception desk and follow the instructions.
This service opens at 9am and closes at 5pm.
If you wish to book at face to face interpreter please call between these times.
The patient must be in the reception when booking a face to face interpreter so that times can be agreed by both parties.
When booking a face to face interpreter the company will provide you with a reference number which must be put onto the appointment screen after booking the appointment
There is also a telephone interpreter if the services do not have any availability to come to the practice or the patient is seen urgently at the practice.
This has to be done by the reception staff and to be added onto the appointment screen for the patient, explaining that this is a telephone interpreter patient and the language required.
The clinician will call through to reception when they are ready to see the patient, the reception then call the telephone number provided in the book or on the leaflet.
Follow the instructions giving details such as the language you require and that the patient is in with the clinician.
Once you have the interpreter on the telephone you can then put the call through to the clinician.
You do not require a doctor's sickness certificate for any illness lasting seven days or less. Your employer may however require you to complete a self-certification form (SC2) which is available from your employer or on the HMRC website.
Evidence that you are sickIf you are sick for more than seven days, your employer can ask you to give them some form of medical evidence to support payment of SSP (statutory sick pay).
It is up to your employer to decide whether you are incapable of work. A medical certificate, now called a 'Statement of Fitness for Work’ (see below) from your doctor is strong evidence that you are sick and would normally be accepted, unless there is evidence to prove otherwise.
You could also provide evidence from someone who is not a medical practitioner, e.g. a dentist. Your employer will decide whether or not this evidence is acceptable. If your employer has any doubts, they may still ask for a medical certificate from your GP.
Statement of Fitness for Work - ’Fit Note'
The 'fit note' was introduced on 6 April 2010. With your employer's support, the note will help you return to work sooner by providing more information about the effects of your illness or injury.
