Fit Notes

From April 2010, we no longer provide sick notes to patients who have been ill from work for longer than 7 days, we now issue ‘Fit Notes’. These fit notes state the patient’s problem and what duties they are able and unable to carry out and also when the patient is likely to be fit for work. You only need a doctor’s fit note if you are unable to work and are ill for longer than seven calendar days. Your employer will provide you with an SC2 self-certificate form for shorter periods of illness or these can be obtained from the local Job Centre.
