NEW APP TO SUPPORT PATIENTS WITH TYPE 2 DIABETES, ASTHMA AND COPD AVAILABLE WITH BURNHAM SURGERY
WE WELCOME LEANNE OUR SOCIAL PRESCRIBER
NHS COVID 19 APP NOW AVAILABLE
Registered patients can make an appointment by telephone, via the patient online service through this website or in person. When making an appointment our reception staff may need to ask you a few questions so that you can be booked with the most appropriate healthcare professional. We now have qualified Advanced Nurse Practitioners and student Advanced Nurse Practitioners available every day who are skilled to see patients with minor and on the day illnesses.
Patients may register (see receptionist) to allow them to make Appointment Bookings or to request Repeat Medication.
To access these services please call into reception to Register. Photographic proof of identity is required (i.e. Passport or Drivers Licence). Each patient must make an individual request for registration, the exception being parents/guardians of children under 16 who may register the child/children themselves.

It is your responsibility as a patient to cancel any appointment you have made in reasonable time so that another patient can benefit from the appointment slot. Even if you are unable to avoid cancelling at short notice, often the receptionist will know of another patient who can use the appointment. Please always try to let us know If you cannot attend an appointment for any reason. Thank you.
The following shows the numbers and the times lost on appointments where patients did not cancel their appointment beforehand.

For home visit requests, please call as early as possible, preferably before 10:00. Your call will be passed to one of our nursing team for assessment.
If you can get to the surgery, please do so. We rely on the co-operation and good common sense of our patients in this respect. With the facilities at the surgery we can make a much better assessment of your problem and whenever possible, patients will be advised to attend.
Home visits are for those too frail, disabled or confined to bed and unable to attend the surgery.
You can also be visited at home by a community nurse if you are referred by your GP. You should also be visited at home by a health visitor if you have recently had a baby or if you are newly registered with a GP and have a child under five years.
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.
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.
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.
