Local dental providers offer NHS urgent dental clinics across Cheshire and Merseyside, with urgent appointments for patients who need urgent treatment, advice and support on dental queries or referral to other services.

The service is provided according to strict clinical criteri

a and when you call you'll be assessed by a member of our clinical team to make sure your problem come under either:

  • Trauma - this is usually caused by a blow to the face, a lost filling is not classed as a trauma.
  • Swelling of the face
  • Bleeding, uncontrolled, such as after an extraction
  • Pain that can't be controlled by pain relief medicines.

If you're given an appointment and your problem doesn't fit of the above, you'll still have to pay the NHS fee but may receive advice and not treatment.

Clinic times vary.and at busy times or when your local clinic's not available you may be offered an appointment at an alternative location.

Please not: this is an appointment only service - we do not operate a "drop in" service at any of our surgeries

Medical Certificatestemperature.jpg

For the first 7 days that you are unable to work through sickness you can complete a self certification form. This form can be obtained from your employer, from the surgery or by following the link below for a printable version.
Self Certification Form.

If you are in hospital, they will provide you with a sick note. If necessary, this can be extended by your GP when you return home, without necessarily needing to see you.

After the first 7 days, you will need a sick note from your GP. If necessary, this can be backdated to ensure continuity of sickness absence so an immediate appointment is not necessary.

When you know the date you are returning to work, we can often give you a ‘starting back’ note (also know as a ‘fit’ note or ‘return to work’ note) on request.

If you want to see your doctor solely to extend a sick note please check with the receptionist whether an appointment is necessary.

Private Sick Notes

If you want a note to confirm sickness within the first 7 days of absence this will require a private note for which a fee is due.
