Get a Sick (Fit) note

If you’ve been off sick for more than 7 days

To request a sick note:

If you’ve been off sick for 7 days or less

If you’re off work sick for 7 days or less, your employer should not ask for medical evidence that you’ve been ill. Instead, they can ask you to confirm that you’ve been ill. You can do this by filling in a form yourself when you return to work. We call this self-certification. Alternatively, you can ask for a private sick note for this period and the cost is typically £45. Please email the surgery at with your specific requirements. You can pay online for this service.
