Sickness Certificates

If you feel you do not need to see the doctor it is not necessary for the doctor to issue a certificate for the first week of your illness.

Self-certification forms may be obtained from your employer. If you are ill for more than 6 days you will need to see the doctor for a certificate.

If you require a sick note from your doctor for insurance purposes please ask your doctor for a private one for which a fee is payable.
