The NHS provides sickness certification only after seven continuous days of illness. If you need a sick note to cover this period of sickness you should complete a Self Certification (SC2) form which is available from your employer or on the HMRC website.​

Please visit the Direct Gov website for full information about fitness for work following a period of sickness.

After this period a NHS certificate may be issued but you will need to contact the surgery as it may be necessary to discuss your request with your GP.

Do I need a note saying I’m fit for work?

In some circumstances and situations, it may be requested by your employer to provide a fit for work note. In this case please contact the surgery to book a telephone consultation.

COVID-19 Sick/Fit Notes

With measures such as social distancing and self isolation being put in place there are many more patients demanding fit notes/ Med3s. The current Government guidance for employers and businesses on coronavirus (covid-19) reiterates that medical evidence is not required for the first 7 days of sickness. It adds that after 7 days, employers may use their discretion around the need for medical evidence if an employee is staying at home.

We have uploaded a letter to our website and ask patients requiring a medical certificate for work relating to covid-19 to download a copy and give it to their employer.

Isolation Note

Patients can now get an isolation note online. Please click link and follow instructions: https://111.nhs.uk/isolation-note
