Test Results

Due to the large number of tests taken on a daily basis it is not possible for patients to be contacted individually with test results. It is important that you contact the practice.

Responsibility for obtaining test results lies with the patient.

Certificates

Patients requiring social welfare certificates/work notes must first attend the doctor. The certificate will be issued as appropriate.

Social welfare requests

All patients that are absent from work for more than five working days are entitled to claim social welfare. In order to claim social welfare the patient must be seen in the surgery. Patients will then be provided with an initial social welfare cert. Patients can then claim weekly inter certs if necessary until they are fit to go back to work in which case they will receive a final social welfare cert.
