Fit Note 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 (fit note).

You can request a fit note from Reception.  Your GP may call you or ask, via Reception, that you attend an appointment.

If you have already been seen by your GP about this illness your certificate will be available to collect after 48 working hours. 

During covid-19, all certificates will be sent via email.

 

Requesting an additional fit note

If you have already had a fit note for the same illness your GP may not need to see you to issue an additional fit note.  Please request this via Reception.

If we do not make any further contact with you, your fit noe will be available to collect after 48 working hours.

During covid-19, all certificates will be sent via email.
