Sick/Fit Note Certificates

Doctor’s Sick/Fit Note for more than 7 days

If you have been ill for more than 7 calendar days your employer will require you to provide a doctor’s certificate. These certificates are called ‘Fitness to Work’ Certificates.

The doctor may call you or arrange for an appointment.

If you have already been seen by your Doctor about this illness your certificate will be sent to you within a week.

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 complete this form. We will contact you to let you know when you can collect your Sick / Fit Note or we may contact you to arrange an appointment.

Self Certification Sick/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 Doctor's note under these circumstances involves a charge.
