Self Certification Sick / Fit Note for less than 7 days
If you have been ill for 7 days or less you don’t need to see a Doctor. You can complete a Self Certification form yourself. We will not provide you with any proof unless you need a chargeable private note (at a cost of £10).
Many employers have their own self-certification forms. If your employer doesn’t have its own form your can download the Self Certification Form. Please print it, fill it in and hand it in to your employer. You do not need to see a Doctor.
