PRESCRIPTION REQUESTS -Please use Econsult where possible for script requests. Patients will understand that the practice will now need to introduce temporary measures to reduce the risks to patients and staff.

If you need to order your repeat prescription this can be done by

  • either placing your request through the letterbox next to main entrance or prescription box situated in the entrance lobby. Please refrain from entering the main reception area. If you don't have your repeat prescription tear off slip, a request form can be accessed via our website or entrance lobby.
  • On MY HEALTH ON-LINE (MHOL) if registered to use
  • Email your request to enquiries.radyrmedical@wales.nhs.uk please provide your name, DOB, address and list of medication required.

If you usually collect your prescription from the practice, we would ask patients to consider either providing a stamped self-address envelope or stating your preferred Pharmacy for collection in order to reduce the need to attend the practice.

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

Sickness CertificatesIf 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.
