   Request A Sick Note

Sickness Certificates

You do not require a doctor’s sickness certificate for any illness lasting seven days or less. Your employer may however require you to complete a self-certification form (SC2). SC2 forms are no longer available from your GP. You will need to ask your employer or you can download and complete an SC2 form yourself on the HMRC website by searching ‘sickness certificate SC2’.


If you are in hospital, they will provide you with a sick note. They should also include any period necessary after you leave hospital. If necessary, this can be extended by your GP when you return home.

After the first 7 days, you will need a sick note from your GP. If necessary, this can be backdated to ensure continuity of sickness absence so an immediate appointment is not necessary.

When you know the date you are returning to work, we can often give you a 'Return to Work' note on request.

If you want to see your doctor solely to extend a sick note, please check with the receptionist whether an appointment is necessary.


Private Sick Notes

If you want a note to confirm sickness within the first 6 days of absence this will require a private note for which a fee is due.
