We are in need of volunteer drivers, if you have time to spare and are a car owner then please contact Alan or Gordon on 07858373912 between 2 and 4 pm for an application form and a chat, forms also available at the Market Deeping Health Centre, please ask at reception.

Vacancies

We are currently looking for a Maternity GP Locum (8 sessions/wk), Advanced Nurse Practitioner, Practice Nurse (up to 37 hrs/wk) and a Health Care Support Worker (30 hrs/wk).  For further information please click here.

Sickness Certificates

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 sick

If 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.
