Fit Notes

A question that we often get asked is "Do I need a note saying I'm fit for work?"

The answer is No.

You do not need to see your doctor again to be signed fit to go back to work.

The fit note does not have an option to say that you're fit for work. If your doctor wants to assess your fitness for work again, they will say this on your fit note.

Some employers have their own policy that requires employees to obtain medical evidence that they are fit for work. If this is the case, your employer should help you arrange this privately with a GP or occupational health specialist. A doctor cannot issue a fit note for this purpose.

See the NHS website for a full explanation of Fit Notes.
