Sick Certificates

A Doctor’s Note or Sick Note is now called a ‘Fit Note

Illness for less than 7 days

If you are unwell and absent from work for 7 days or less, you do not need a doctor’s note.  In these instances, you can ‘self certify’ your illness.

Your employer might have a procedure or form for you to complete or you can use the SC2 Self-certificate Form.

Illness longer than 7 days

If you are unwell and away from work for 7 days or more, you will need a Fit Note.

You do not need to make an appointment with the doctor for this.  Please tell receptionist the reason and dates of absence and a request will be made to the Doctor for your Fit Note.

Allow two working days before collecting.

You do not need a Fit Note to return to work.
