Sick Notes

Self Certification Sick / Fit Note for less than 7 days

You do not require a doctor’s sickness certificate for any illness lasting seven days or less. Your employer may however require you to complete a self-certification form (SC2) which is available from your employer or on the HMRC website (please click here to download the form)

However, some employers insist on a Doctor’s note regardless. A Doctor’s note under these circumstances may involve a charge.


Doctor’s Sick / Fit 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 ‘Med3 Fit Notes’ Certificates. You need to put in a written request via post or by email or submit the below form.

The doctor may call you or we may ask you arrange for an appointment if necessary. Your certificate will be ready within a week
