The law says you may self certify your illness for seven days before any need for an official Department of Health sick note. Your employer should provide you with a self certification (SC2) so that you can declare your illness (legally you do not need this for the first three days of your illness). If your illness continues for more than seven days, under the NHS your GP can issue an official Department of Health statement (called the Fit Note) as a statement of your illness.

Please note, if you require a sick note for an illness of fewer than seven days' duration, a private doctor's statement may be requested. The fee for this statement is £18.00, which is a set BMA Rate, to be met by the patient or the employer.


The practice does not provide these services. Patients should consult with their occupational health provider for assistance.
