    Isolation or sick notes information

    We are receiving high levels of calls and queries regarding isolation or sick notes for Covid-19 related issues. We will try and outline the main queries and the steps you can take. Please be advised that if you are self isolating due to you showing symptoms, or a member of your household, that isolation notes can be gained through the NHS 111 website. These will not be generated by your GP practice. If you feel you require an isolation note please visit NHS 111 https://111.nhs.uk/isolation-note/ A small number of our patients may have received a letter informing you that you fall into a "high risk" category and advise you to follow shielding advice for 12 weeks. Please use this letter as evidence for your employer. A sick note is not required in this instance. If you feel you are at high risk and have not received a letter, please contact the Practice and this can be investigated for you. For clarity, the patients at highest risk are listed here: have had an organ transplant are having certain types of cancer treatment have blood or bone marrow cancer, such as leukaemia have a severe lung condition, such as cystic fibrosis or severe asthma have a condition that makes you much more likely to get infections are taking medicine that weakens your immune system are pregnant and have a serious heart condition We are aware that there is a larger group of patients that fall into "at risk" categories - NHS Digital are working hard to identify these patients and will be contacted in due course. The practice is not able to give additional information about this or say which patients will be included nor can we provide letters to confirm that you are at high risk. Any other requests for time off due to Covid-19 related issues must be discussed with your employer. There is a wealth of information online regarding Covid-19 and employment https://www.acas.org.uk/coronavirus https://www.unison.org.uk/coronavirus-rights-work/ https://www.gov.uk/…/guidance-to-employers-and-businesses-a… Our advice to all of our patients is to follow the current government guidance: stay home apart from essential shopping, for essential work and, if you fancy it, one form of exercise per day. In all of these circumstances, ensure to keep a 2m distance from others and wash your hands at regular intervals with soap and warm water.
