Fit Notes

Fitness to Work Certificates

It is not necessary to see a doctor specifically for a certificate in the first week of illness.

Self-certification forms for the first 6 days of absence are available from reception, from your employer or the post office or you can download one from http://www.hmrc.gov.uk/forms/sc2.pdf.

If a signed certificate is requested to cover the first 7 days of illness, then a private certificate can be issued at a charge.

After the first week, sickness certificates may be obtained as part of the consultation with the doctor free of charge.

Remember that if you have been in hospital a certificate to cover any in-patient period must be issued before you are discharged.
