If you require a sick note, you can get one online by completing the Sick/Fit Note triage.
If you are in hospital, they will provide you with a sick note. They should also include any period necessary after you leave hospital. If necessary, this can be extended by your GP when you return home.
When you know the date you are returning to work, we can often give you a ‘starting back’ note (also known as a ‘fit’ note or ‘return to work’ note) on request.
If you want to see your doctor solely to extend a sick note, please check with the receptionist whether an appointment is necessary.
Private Sick Notes
If you want a note to confirm sickness within the first 7 days of absence this will require a private note for which a fee is due.
