Talk Health Kirklees

On 12th October 2016 Greater Huddersfield CCG and North Kirklees CCG have launched a public conversation about a range of proposals under the banner of “Talk health Kirklees”. Feedback received from this work will support the decision-making process, in line with statutory duties.
Like public services across the country, the NHS remains under significant financial pressure. Every year the CCG must make efficiency savings so that it can ensure local healthcare needs are met. As opportunities for savings are identified the CCG's need to involve patients and local stakeholders as well as GP's.  
The initial conversation will run for six weeks until 27 November and will focus on:
  • Over-the-counter and pharmacy-only medicines 
  • Gluten-free foods
  • Procedures for managing individual funding requests and restricted treatment
  • Branded medicines


Calling all Carers

Are you a Carer of a Relative, friend, Neighbour?


If so please let the surgery know, they will ask you to complete a short questionnaire, Did you know you are entitled to a Health Check with the Practice Nurse, also you are entitled to a flu injection.

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, by asking at our reception or by completing online 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).

Your employer can ask you to confirm that you've been ill. You can do this by filling in a form yourself when you return to work. This is called self-certification.

If you're sick and off work for more than seven days, your employer will probably ask for proof of your illness. Most employers ask for a fit note from your GP.

However, this will also depend on your employer's company policy on sick leave (or sickness absence). This policy should tell you how many days you can be off sick before you need to provide proof of illness or a fit note.

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.

Friends & Family Test

GP surgeries are now required to participate in the NHS Friends & Family Test. This is a very short question survey.

Online Prescription requests

We are now able to offer patients the ability to order repeat prescriptions online.

Please see the appointments or prescriptions tab on the left for further details. Under no circumstances must patients email the PPG group with their request as this contravenes your data protection.
