For less than 7 days
If you have been ill for 7 days or less you don’t need to see a Doctor. You can complete a Self-Certification form yourself.
Many employers have their own self-certification forms. If your employer doesn’t have its own form you can complete the HMRC Self Certification Form here. Once you have completed the online form you will be able to print it and hand it in to your employer. You do not need to see a Doctor.
For more than 7 days
If you have been ill for more than 7 days you will need a doctor’s certificate. These certificates are called ‘Fitness to Work’ Certificates. Please call fill in an ‘adminstration’ econsult form and then we will be able to arrange an appointment for you with a doctor.
Requesting an additional Sick/Fit Note
If you have already had a Sick Note (Fit Note) for this illness your Doctor may not need to see you to issue an additional Sick Note. Please call fill in an ‘adminstration’ econsult form and then we will be able to arrange to send you a further sick/fit note.
