For all illnesses lasting seven working days or less, a fit note (MED3) from your doctor is not required. Instead, on returning to work complete a self-certification form, which is available from your employer or online. MED3' s cannot be initiated in advance of the first day (day 8 of sickness) so please do not call to request the sick note in advance of day 8.
We do not issue letters/notes/certificates to schools/colleges if a patient has missed an exam due to illness or if they need special circumstances. This falls outside of our GMS contract and would be treated as private work and chaged at £30 per letter. We would need 3 days notice to issue any private letters.
If a note for a private insurance scheme is required, then a charge of £15 will be made as this falls outside the NHS system.
