Request Sick Note

Important Notice

If you’re off work sick for 7 days or less, your employer should not ask for medical evidence that you’ve been ill – you do not need to complete this form. Instead they can ask you to confirm that you’ve been ill by filling in a form when you return to work. This is called self-certification.

If you have been off work sick for 7 days or more, complete the process below.

Requesting A Sick Note Using Patient Triage

To request a fit (sick) note from the practice, you would need to submit a request by clicking the link to Patient Triage.
