Doctor’s Sick / Fit Note for more than 7 days
Dear Patients, due to the pressure the NHS is currently under, the government have temporarily changed the rules for fit notes. For further information see GOV: Taking sick leave.
Please do not request a sick/fit note in the first 28 days of illness.
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.
The doctor may call you or arrange for an appointment.
If you have already been seen by your Doctor about this illness your certificate will be sent to you within a week.
