Sick Notes

Self Certification Sick 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 (also known as a “Private Statement of Fitness for Work”) under these circumstances involves a charge of £20.

Many employers have their own self-certification forms. If your employer doesn’t have its own form you can download this form SC2-Form. Please print it, fill it in and hand it in to your employer. You do not need to see a Doctor.

Doctor’s Sick 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 ‘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.
