Sicklines/Fitnotes

 Sickness Certificates


If you have an illness lasting seven days or less you do not require a doctor's sickness certificate.  Your employer may require you to complete a self-certification form called a SC2 which is available from the HMRC website or you can click on the link below to download a form.     


Self certification sickness form SC2


 


Statement of Fitness for Work - 'Fit Note


If you are off work for more than seven days due to illness, your employer can ask you to give them some form of medical evidence to support payment of SSP (statutory sick pay).


It is up to your employer to decide whether you are incapable of work. A medical certificate, now called a 'Statement of Fitness for Work’ from your doctor is strong evidence that you are sick and would normally be accepted, unless there is evidence to prove otherwise.


With your employer's support, the note may help you return to work sooner by providing more information about the effects of your illness or injury.


For more information see the DirectGov website (from where this information was sourced)


 


Requesting a Fitnote


If you have not seen a doctor at the practice and we have had no information from a medical professional about your illness, you will not be able to get a certificate without a GP telephone appointment. Depending on the outcome of the telephone appointment, the GP my need you to book a face to face appointment. Please phone the Practice to book an initial telephone appointment.


 


If a GP has already discussed your illness with you then you can request a Fitnote by using the link below. If your illness is COVID19 related see the specific details below.
