Fit/Sick Notes – more info here

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. However some employers insist on a Doctor’s note regardless. A Doctors note under these circumstances involves a charge of £30.00.

Many employers have their own self-certification forms. If your employer doesn’t have its own form you 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.

If you have been ill for more than 7 days you will need a doctor’s certificate. These certificates are called ‘Fitness To Work’ Certificates. You will need to have seen a Doctor for the illness to be issued with a certificate. If this is an ongoing illness you can request further certificates via a telephone consultation however the Doctor may wish to see you to review your symptoms before issuing a certificate.

 

Referrals

Most referrals to other specialists will require you seeing or speaking with a GP. There are some local services which you can refer directly into.

For further information please click here.

If you have already been referred by your GP and you need to track your referral you can contact the hospital directly. Most of our referrals are completed via the NHS e-Referral Service (Choose and Book). You will have been given/sent the paperwork regarding your referral, you can use this information to contact the hospital.
