Sickness Certificates

********************************************************************

Patients will not need to get a fit note until they have been off work for more than 28 days under temporary measures to free up GPs for the Covid-19 booster programme.

The Department for Work and Pensions said that until 26 January, people will be able to self-certify for four weeks rather than being asked to get a note from their GP after one week.

Under the new legislation employers will not be able to ask for proof for workers to claim statutory sick pay until after 28 days have passed.

Fit notes will also not be needed for benefit claims until 27 January, said the DWP, upon announcing the new requirements from Friday 17 December.

Anyone who started their sick leave before 10 December 2021, must give proof if they have been off work for more than seven days, including non-working days, the Government advice said.

And if employees are self-isolating and cannot work because of Covid-19 they can get an ‘isolation note’ online from NHS 111, as before.

*****************************************************************************

 

The NHS provides sickness certification only after seven continuous days of illness.  If you need a sick note to cover this period of sickness (less than 7 days) you should complete a Self Certification (SC2) form which is available from your employer or on the HMRC website. Please visit the Direct Gov website for full information about fitness for work following a period of sickness.

If you need a sick note (MED3) to cover a period of more than 7 days illness, please fill in the form below

If you require a paper form, please download the document (Sick note-MED3 request) and email it to baconlane.surgery@nhs.net or drop it off at the surgery.

Do I need a note saying I’m fit for work?

No. You decide when you are well enough to work and do not need the GP to say you are well enough even if you sick note has not expired yet
