Furnace House Surgery can now announce that the telephone appointments system implemented during Covid is now ending.  You will now be able to book either face to face or telephone consultation appointment with your GP.

The current Government Guidance for employers and businesses on coronavirus (Covid-19) states;

“By law, medical evidence is not required for the first 7 days of sickness. After 7 days, employers may use their discretion around the need for medical evidence if an employee is staying at home.

We strongly suggest that employers use their discretion around the need for medical evidence for a period of absence where an employee is advised to stay at home either as they are unwell themselves, or live with someone who is, in accordance with the public health advices issued by the government.”
