Sick/Fit Note Certificates
Self Certification Sick/Fit Note for less than 7 days
If you have been ill for 7 days or less you do not need to see a Doctor. You can complete a Self-Certification form yourself. However some employers insist on a Doctor’s note regardless. A Doctors note under these circumstances involves a charge of £15.
Many employers have their own self-certification forms. If your employer does not have its own form you can download a Self Certification Form. Please print it, fill it in and hand it in to your employer. You do not need to see a Doctor.
Requesting an additional Sick/Fit Note
If you have already had a Sick Note (Fit Note) for this illness your Doctor may not need to see you to issue an additional Sick Note. Please use eConsult to request a further note.
