Need a sick line?

This can be dealt with in a routine GP appointment

Book a 15 minute GP appointment from just £60


Due to COVID-19 all appointments will be by phone or video initially, using common platforms such as Zoom, Skype, WhatsApp or Facetime.  If a face-to-face physical examination is required this will be arranged by the Doctor.

A GP appointment is suitable for a range of issues:

  • Requesting a sick line

  • Seeking a referral

  • Women's health

  • Men's health

  • Children's health

  • Older person's health

  • Family planning

  • Fertility

  • Support for a healthy lifestyle

  • Any problem for which your would usually book a routine NHS GP appointment

Please note:

  • The doctor will assess your medical problem and ascertain if a sick line is indicated, please ensure you are able to give clear and accurate details of your illness

  • The doctor may not be able to backdate the sick note to a date preceding the consultation date if they are unable to verify your state of health prior to the consultation

  • If you have already consulted another healthcare professional about the illness (e.g. a physiotherapist for back pain) it is helpful if you bring details with you to your GP appointment. This can help the GP verify the nature of you illness and may allow them to backdate a sick line based on the earlier assessment of another healthcare professional
