Physio Self referrals                                                                          

Self referrals will now be handled by telephone.  The service is operated by the Musculoskeletal Assessment & Triage Service (MATS) which is hosted by NHS24 and the telephone number is: 0800 917 9390

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 can be downloaded here Self Certification Certificate

If after the 7 days you are still not fit to return to work, you must contact the surgery as you may need to make an appointment to see a GP. If requesting a certificate by phone PLEASE allow 48 hours for its completion.

 

Advice for employees

Even though your employer should take every care to look after your health and safety, you should also consider what you can do to look after yourself at work and return quickly, and safely, after an injury or ill health. More information can be found here
