Doctor’s Sick/Fit Note

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. Please note that doctors cannot future-date a certificate.

If you are ill for less than 7 days, you do not need a doctor's certificate. Please speak to your employer about how to self-certificate.

Doctors can only complete certificates for problems which are already in your medical records. For example, you may have spoken to a GP before, or you may have gone to a hospital. If this is a new problem which is not in your records, you will need to book an appointment to speak to a doctor.
