Dr Massie's Retirement

We would like to inform our patients and colleagues that Dr Massie has decided the time has come for him to hang up his stethoscope and retire after 35 years in Tweeddale!

 

Dr Massie will officially retire from medicine on Friday, 28th September 2018 although his last working day will be at the end of August.

 

A time of very mixed emotions for us in the practice – we are delighted for him personally to start the next chapter in life but he will, of course, be very much missed.

Please note that the GP will not usually issue you with a fit/sick note unless you have been off work for more than 7 days. For the first 7 days your employer should be able to provide you with a 'self certificate'.

We have recently reviewed our process for “sick lines” – now known as Fit Notes.

If a Fit Note is to be issued, it is important that it is done in a proper appointment so that the GP can carry out a full assessment of your care.

If you think you may need another Fit Note, please book a follow-up appointment with your usual GP. This can be either a bookable telephone appointment or a face-to-face appointment in the surgery. Please phone in advance.
