First Sick / Fit Note

How long have you been ill (including holidays and weekends)?

If you have been sick for more than four days in a row, but less than seven, you can self–certify your illness using a SC2 form available online from HMRC.

Many employers have their own self-certification forms. You do not need to see a Doctor.

If you have already had a Note for this illness your Doctor may not need to see you to issue an additional Note. Please complete this form. We will contact you to let you know when your Note is ready or we may contact you for more information.

Are you self-isolating because you, or someone you live with, has symptoms of coronavirus?

Doctor’s Sick / Fit Note for more than 7 days

If you have been ill for more than 7 days you will need a doctor’s certificate. These certificates are called ‘Fitness To Work’ Certificates.

If you have been sick for more than four days in a row, but less than seven, you can self-certify your illness using a SC2 form. You can obtain this from your employer or the HMRC website. If you are unwell for more than four days you should contact the surgery to arrange assessment of your fitness to work.

More than seven days off sick

If you’re off work sick for more than seven days your employer will normally ask for a Fit Note (Statement of Fitness for Work) from your GP or Hospital Doctor.

How to count sick days

When you work out the number of days you’ve been sick, you need to count all the days in a row, including days you don’t normally work such as weekends and bank holidays.
