Medical Certificates

GPs are not obliged to provide their patients with a Fit Note (sick note) for the first 7 days or less.

Your employer should have a supply of self certification forms (SC1/SC2), which you should complete on return to work. A link to a printable version has been provided below for your convenience.

If your employer requests a medical certificate for less than 7 days illness this would require an appointment with a GP and would incur a private fee. These fees are payable at the time of consultation but might not be reimbursed by your employer.

The practice charges for other non-NHS services including fitness to travel and fitness to exercise certification. A fee will also be charged for any investigations or tests required in order to provide such certificates.

SC2 Form

If you are off work for more than 7 days you can request a 'Fit Note' via eConsult. The request will be sent to a Clinician who will consider your request. If they agree to write a 'Fit Note' this can be emailed to you.
