COVID-19 Information

Request for Med3 Certificate due to Covid-19 Self-Isolation

The Government have issued guidance that Med3 certificates are NOT required if you are self-isolating due to Coronavirus (either because of symptoms or if you live with someone who has symptoms and therefore cannot work).

Instead, you can obtain an Isolation note via the NHS 111 online website. The Isolation Note provides the information that your employer requires as evidence of absence from work. But remember, you can still self-certify for the first 7 days of absence.

Here’s how it works:

  • Click on the link https://111.nhs.uk/isolation-note/
  • Answer the questions
  • Record your email address. Your isolation note will be emailed to you. If you don’t have an email you can have the note sent to a trusted friend or family member or directly to your employer.

You can also use the online service to generate a note on behalf of someone else.

Dear Patients

Due to COVID19, we will be closing Durrington Surgery at 18:30 on Friday 27th March.

Importantly, we will continue to provide services in accordance with our current arrangements from Upavon Surgery.

Our workforce is diminishing and therefore our capacity to answer telephone calls is reducing. Do not rely on visiting the Practice to arrange care, such as booking appointments or requesting medication, as time progresses, we may not allow you on site unless you are attending a face to face appointment with a clinician.
