I need a Sick Note

For absences of five or less working days employers are responsible for providing self certification forms for members of their staff.  If your employer requires a Doctor’s sick note for absences of five days or less there is a fee payable, as this comes under the heading of non-NHS work.

The Doctor will only give a sick note if you are going to be absent from work for more than five working days; you will need to see a Doctor.  For a continuation sick note you can phone the Surgery on Tel: 0117 9653102 to request another sick note but the Doctor may ring you for more information.
