Obtain a fit note
If you're off work sick for more than seven days your employer will normally ask for a fit note (or Statement of Fitness for Work) from your GP or hospital doctor.
With your employer's support, the note will help you return to work sooner by providing more information about the effects of your illness or injury.
We regret we are unable to issue a fit note without seeing the patient.
- Fit notes cannot be forward dated although they can be back dated.
- If you have recently received hospital treatment and require a sick note you need to contact the hospital department you attended.
- If the sick note is for an ongoing condition that you have previously discussed with a doctor here then it is appropriate to contact us.
