Please note that the GP will not usually issue you with a fit/sick note unless you have been off work for more than 7 days. For the first 7 days your employer should be able to provide you with a 'self certificate'.

We have recently reviewed our process for “sick lines” – now known as Fit Notes.

If a Fit Note is to be issued, it is important that it is done in a proper appointment so that the GP can carry out a full assessment of your care.

If you think you may need another Fit Note, please book a follow-up appointment with your usual GP. This can be either a bookable telephone appointment or a face-to-face appointment in the surgery. Please phone in advance.
