What is abuse?
Abuse is when a person does something to somebody that hurts physically, emotionally
or causes distress.
This may be done on purpose, but sometimes the person who abuses may not realise
what they are doing is wrong. This person could be someone you know, a friend or
family member or it could somebody you have never met before.
Below is a link to Safeguarding Awareness and what to do if you suspect abuse.
Keeping People Safe from Abuse
Thorneloe Lodge Surgery is always looking for ways to improve the services it offers to patients. To do this effectively, the practice needs to know what you think about the services you receive. Tell us what we do best, where we don’t meet your expectations plus any ideas and suggestions you may have. Only by listening to you can the practice continue to build and improve upon the service it offers.

Complaints & Comments Leaflet
If you have any illness lasting seven days or less you do not require a doctor's sickness certificate. Your employer may require you to complete a self-certification form called an SC2 which is available from the HMRC website or you can click on the link below to download a form.
Self Certification Form
If you are off work for more than seven days due to illness, 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.
The 'fit note' was introduced on 6 April 2010. With your employer's support, the note may help you return to work sooner by providing more information about the effects of your illness or injury.
