Request Sick / Fit Note

If you have been ill for 7 days or less you do not 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 under these circumstances involves a charge of £30.

Many employers have their own self-certification forms. If your employer does not have its own form you can download a Self Certification Form. Please print it, fill it in and hand it in to your employer. You do not need to see a doctor.
