Sick notes

Sick Notes  If you require a sick note (now known as a Fit Note),  please telephone the surgery.  Tel 01925 765101

If employees are off work for 7 days or less, they do not need to give their employer a fit note or other proof of sickness from a medical professional.

When they return to work, their employer can ask them to confirm they’ve been off sick. This is called ‘self-certification’. The employer and employee will agree on how the employee should do this. Please see the link below.
