Sick/Fit Note Certificates

Less than 7 days

Use this form if you are an employee, you’ve been sick for 4 or more days in a row & need to claim statutory sick pay from your employer

Many employers have their own self-certification forms or you can download the form: Employee's statement of sickness (SC2)

We regret we cannot provide a GP sick note if you have been sick for less than 7 days. If your employer insists then please download the letter below

More than 7 days

Submit a request if you have been ill for more than 7 days or need a continuation note. If approved you will be notified by text when it is ready. Your GP may suggest a phased return to work, altered hours, amended duties or workplace adaptations.

Providing a sick note is not classed as an urgent care need. We do our best to provide promptly & we appreciate your patience.

You can submit an admin online request. The service for admin requests is available Monday-Friday 8am to 6pm (excluding bank holidays)
