Sick (fit) notes
FIT TO WORK CERTIFICATES
Under current legislation a Patient can “self-certificate” for the first 7 working days of any illness. The self-certificate (Form SC2) is available by clicking on the link, of from your employer. We do not normally issue doctors certificates for the first week. If your employer insists on a doctors certificate, this will incur a private fee
After the first week, if you require a free Statement of Fitness for Work (Fit Note), please complete an online referral request, eConsult, as these are obtained as part of a consultation with a doctor. If you wish to renew a statement, please complete an online referral form, eConsult, or call the surgery and we will advise the GP. This usually does not require a second appointment.
