DECEMBER CLINICS

DUE TO EXTREMELY HIGH DEMAND FOR URGENT APPOINTMENTS OVER THE MONTH OF DECEMBER BECAUSE OF ILLNESS, THE PRACTICE WILL HAVE NO ROUTINE APPOINTMENTS THIS MONTH. JUST URGENT. UNFORTUNATELY, IT IS NOT A PRACTICE DECISION; IT IS A CCG LEVEL DECISION. WE HAVE NO CHOICE.

WE JUST ASK FOR YOUR PATIENCE AND UNDERSTANDING DURING THIS TIME.

THANK YOU

DRS PARR, LAWSON AND NEWTON.

Unfortunately  the Practice cannot register patients from Billinge Surgery, at this time.  This is being constantly reviewed, but the partners do not feel that it is appropriate at this time. 

We will be taking part in the Worlds Biggest Coffee Morning on Friday the 28th September from 10.00am until 11.30am to raise funds for Macmillan Cancer Support. Please feel free to join us for cake and refreshments.

Need Urgent Dental Care?

If you need help with an urgent dental problem, call our helpline, available from 9am to 9:30pm everyday, including weekends and Bank Holidays.

0161 476 9651 (Local Rate)

Local dental providers offer NHS urgent dental clinics across Cheshire and Merseyside, with urgent appointments for patients who need urgent treatment, advice and support on dental queries or referral to other services.

The service is provided according to strict clinical criteri

a and when you call you'll be assessed by a member of our clinical team to make sure your problem come under either:

  • Trauma - this is usually caused by a blow to the face, a lost filling is not classed as a trauma.
  • Swelling of the face
  • Bleeding, uncontrolled, such as after an extraction
  • Pain that can't be controlled by pain relief medicines.

If you're given an appointment and your problem doesn't fit of the above, you'll still have to pay the NHS fee but may receive advice and not treatment.

Clinic times vary.and at busy times or when your local clinic's not available you may be offered an appointment at an alternative location.

Please not: this is an appointment only service - we do not operate a "drop in" service at any of our surgeries

Medical Certificatestemperature.jpg

For the first 7 days that you are unable to work through sickness you can complete a self certification form. This form can be obtained from your employer, from the surgery or by following the link below for a printable version.
Self Certification Form.

If you are in hospital, they will provide you with a sick note. If necessary, this can be extended by your GP when you return home, without necessarily needing to see you.

After the first 7 days, you will need a sick note from your GP. If necessary, this can be backdated to ensure continuity of sickness absence so an immediate appointment is not necessary.

When you know the date you are returning to work, we can often give you a ‘starting back’ note (also know as a ‘fit’ note or ‘return to work’ note) on request.

If you want to see your doctor solely to extend a sick note please check with the receptionist whether an appointment is necessary.

Private Sick Notes

If you want a note to confirm sickness within the first 7 days of absence this will require a private note for which a fee is due.
