Sick / Fit Notes

If you are unwell for more than seven days and unable to work, you may need a Statement of Fitness for Work (also known as a medical certificate or sick/fit note). You do not require a doctor’s sickness certificate for any illness lasting less than seven days as you can self certify using the form found on the HMRC website.

Please be aware we will not issue a fit note before the first day you will need to be away from work (i.e. pre-date fit notes in advance) however we can overlap two certificates if necessary. We ask that patients only request fit notes near to the time the initial statement will run out, rather than 2-3 weeks in advance and that they allow 5 working days for these to be processed.

For more information, please visit the GOV.UK website.

Coronavirus update: in light of the ongoing pandemic, your GP will email your fit note to you to avoid unnecessary face-to-face contact at the surgery. When requesting your fit note either over the phone or using the below form, please provide your email address so we can send it securely to you.

Once you receive the link for your fit note, please open and save the document as soon as it arrives. The link will expire if not opened within 24 hours. If you are self-isolating due to COVID-19, you can request an isolation note via the NHS.
