Sick Note (Fit Note)

Who do I see?

Self certify first 7 days, then GP via Practice Secretaries

Advice:

After your period of self certification please contact your GP’s secretary on 01506 414586 in the first instance. You will then be advised if a GP consultation is required. This will usually be the case if it is the first note issued by us, unless you have seen another Clinician – e.g. in hospital

If you have been discharged from hospital, your hospital team will issue any fit notes for the entire period of your recovery. Please contact the ward staff (even after discharge). Schools should not request a GP letter to confirm absence, this can be written by a parent or guardian.

A Fit note can be backdated if required, please discuss this when you see the GP. Please do not use an emergency/urgent appointment for a sick note.Thank you
