Fit Note

This is my first sick note for this illness

Ill for 7 days or less: If you have been ill for 7 days or less you don’t need to see a Doctor. You can complete a Self Certification form yourself. However some employers insist on a Doctor’s note regardless. A Doctors note under these circumstances involves a charge of £30. Many employers have their own self-certification forms.

Ill for more than 7 days: If you have been ill for more than 7 days you will need a doctor’s certificate. These certificates are called ‘Fitness To Work’ Certificates. Please contact the practice. We will let you know when you can collect your Sick/Fit Note or we may contact you to arrange an appointment.

I already had a Sick/Fit Note for this illness

If you have already had a Sick Note (Fit Note) for this illness your Doctor may not need to see you to issue an additional Sick Note. Please contact the practice. We will let you know when you can collect your Sick/Fit Note or we may contact you to arrange an appointment.
