Request a sick note

Procedure

For the first 7 days that you are unable to work through sickness you can complete a self certification form. this form can be obtained from GOV.UK website.
The Surgery does not issue self certification forms.

If you are in hospital, they will provide you with a sick note. They should also include any period necessary after you leave hospital. If necessary, this can be extended by your GP when you return home.

After the first 7 days, you will need a sick note from your GP. If necessary, this can be backdated to ensure continuity of sickness absence so an immediate appointment is not necessary. We can book you in for a call from the doctor that complete your previous sick note.

If you want to see your doctor solely to extend a sick note, please check with the receptionist whether an appointment is necessary.


Private Sick Notes

If you want a note to confirm sickness within the first 7 days of absence this will require a private note for which a fee is due.
