Fit Notes

Emailing of Sick/Fit notes

Given the current position with COVID-19 and government advice to stay at home unless essential we have put a process in place to email sick/fit notes directly to patients. Please ensure you put your correct email address into the form and we will email it directly to you, which will avoid the need for you to attend the surgery and you can forward this onto your employer.

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. However some employers insist on a Doctor’s note regardless. A Doctors note under these circumstances involves a charge of £10.

Many employers have their own self-certification forms. If your employer doesn’t have its own form you can download the Self Certification Form. Please print it, fill it in and hand it in to your employer. You do not need to see a Doctor.
