Sickness Certificates

CORONAVIRUS: Ashville COVID19 Click here to download a printable medical statement. Or visit NHS 111 to complete a self-isolation note:  111.nhs.uk/isolation-note

The NHS provides sickness certification only after seven continuous days of illness.  If you need a sick note to cover this period of sickness you should complete a Self Certification (SC2) form which is available from your employer or on the HMRC website.

Please visit the Direct Gov website for full information about fitness for work following a period of sickness. After this period a NHS certificate may be issued but you will need to contact the surgery as it may be necessary to discuss your request with your GP.

From Monday 15 June 2020, our new eConsult service will go live.  All admin requests (letters, medical certificates etc) can be sent via eConsult. Here’s a video showing how it works. For more info, click here.

Do I need a note saying I’m fit for work?

No. You do not need to see your GP again to be ‘signed back to work’.
