Sick/Fit Note Certificates London
If your sick leave is seven days or less, your employer shouldn’t request a doctor’s certificate. However, a medical certificate is required if your sick leave extends beyond seven days, inclusive of non-working days. It’s important to factor in weekends and bank holidays when calculating the duration of your sick leave.
Our dedicated team of healthcare professionals offers a streamlined process for issuing sick notes, letters for employers, and fit to work certificates.
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.
The First 7 Days Off Sick
For the initial seven days of illness or injury (including Sundays), a doctor’s medical certificate is not required. Instead, a ‘self-certification form’ suffices to provide evidence of your inability to work. If employed, form SC2 is needed, available from your employer or online. Unemployed or self-employed individuals require form SC1.
Note: A certificate is unnecessary for the first three days, and fees may apply if your employer insists otherwise.
More Than 7 Days Off Sick
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.
How do I receive a sick note certificate at your London clinic?
If you require a new sick note or have already been provided one for the current illness, our streamlined approach eliminates the need for unnecessary visits.
Simply book online to speak to one of our GPs to discuss your personal circumstances. A sick note can be written by the doctor immediately, and emailed/printed for you after the consultation. This ensures that you can focus on recovery without unnecessary interruptions.
