“SICK NOTES” / “FITNESS FOR WORK”
Click here to download the SC2 forms which cover your first week off sick. NI certificates (form Med 3) are only available from your doctor and commence after one week of absence from work. Hospital wards and outpatients are able to provide routine certificates.
If you require a continuous sick certificate (Med 3) please contact the surgery to request. Please allow 48 hours for this to be processed.
Please be aware that we DO NOT provide a ‘return to work’ certificate, even if you employer requests this. Please go to https://www.gov.uk/government/uploads/system/uploads/attachment_data/file/464395/fit-note-patients-employees-guidance-sept-2015.pdf, page 6 of where it states that the Doctor cannot give a fit note stating this.
