Fitness to Work & Sick Certificates Birmingham
At our Birmingham based private GP clinic, we understand the significance of ensuring individuals are fit for work and providing necessary documentation for employers. Our dedicated team of healthcare professionals offers a streamlined process for issuing sick notes, letters for employers, and fit to work certificates.
Whether you’re recovering from an illness, injury, or managing a chronic condition, our clinic provides comprehensive assessments to determine your fitness to work. We prioritise your well-being, aiming to facilitate a smooth return to your workplace by providing accurate and timely documentation, easing the process for both employees and employers.
The process of obtaining sick/fit note certificates can often be complex, with various factors to consider. We aim to simplify this process, ensuring that you have the necessary documentation to navigate work-related matters during times of illness.
Self-certification for short-term illness
When illness strikes for a period of 7 days or less, the journey to obtaining a sick/fit note certificate begins with self-certification. Our user-friendly approach empowers you to complete a Self-Certification form independently, without the need to consult a doctor. This efficient process allows you to swiftly address your absence from work while adhering to your employer’s guidelines.
We recognise that certain employers may request a doctor’s note even for shorter illnesses. If your employer requires a doctor’s note, we provide an accessible solution.
For illnesses longer than 7-days
For illnesses surpassing the 7-day threshold, a doctor’s certificate known as a ‘Fitness to Work’ Certificate becomes essential. At Private Medical Clinic, we streamline this process to facilitate your recovery journey. If you have already consulted one of our GPs regarding your illness, rest assured that your certificate will be promptly delivered on the same day, saving you valuable time.
We email you your sick note to forward to your employer immediately after your consultation. We advise patients to provide a copy of any letters to their NHS GP for continuity of care.
