Sick Notes

A sick note is only required after seven days of your illness. You will need to inform your employer and if necessary, complete a self certification form. This form is obtained from your employer.

A sick note from the GP is needed for an illness lasting more than five days. You will need to make an appointment to see the doctor for this. If your illness extends beyond the period certified by the doctor, you will need to see the doctor again for an extension.

Occasionally, a telephone call may be sufficient, if this has been previously agreed with the GP. If you have been discharged from the hospital and require a sick note, please supply a copy of the hospital discharge note. A sick note can be made on the basis of information on the discharge letter. Please make an appointment to see the GP if you are unsure.

Some non face to face requests for a sick note may be refused. An appointment with the GP is required if you have been asked to obtain a Med 4 certification.
