Request a 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.

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.

For more information, please see NHS: When do I need a fit note?

Sick/Fit Note

You do not need a sick note for the first 7 days of an illness – you can still self-certify your illness.

For isolating due to COVID-19 you can get an isolation note for up to 14 days here:

Have you been off sick for more than 7 days?
Have you already had a note about this?
Eg: Working from home, fewer hours, different tasks at work?
