You only need a Doctor’s note if you are unable to work and are ill for longer than seven calender days. We ask that you make an appointment with the Doctor should your require a Medical Certificate, now called a 'Statement of Fitness for Work’.
GPs are not obliged to issue NHS medical certificates for periods of sickness of less than seven days' duration. However, if you or your employer require a short-term certificate, the Doctor is entitled to charge a fee.
Please note that a charge of £15.00 will apply for this service.
