Sickness Certificates

The Doctor will not provide a Fit to Work note (sick note) for the first 7 days of your illness.  You can collect a self-certification form from the surgery or your workplace should have a form available for you to complete.

If you have an ongoing illness you may not neccesarily need to see a doctor for follow up certifcates, contact the surgery to make a telephone appointment.

If you go into hospital for any reason you must request the fit to work note from the consultant looking after you.
