Self Certification Fit Note for less than 7 days
If you have been ill for 7 days or less you don’t need to see a Doctor. You can complete a Self-Certification form yourself. Many employers have their own self-certification forms. If your employer doesn’t have its own form you can complete the Self Certification Form online.
Please print it, fill it in and hand it in to your employer. You do not need to see a Doctor.
Request a Fit/Sick note for more than 7 days
If you have been ill for more than 7 days you will need a doctor’s certificate. These certificates are called ‘Fitness to Work’ Certificates.
You will require an inital appointment with a clinician before a Fit Note is provided. If you have recently been discharged from hospital please ask your consultant for a Fit Note.
If you have already been seen by your Doctor about this your certificate will be ready after 48/72 hours and can be collected directly from the surgery.
