Sick/Fit Note Certificates

Self Certification Sick/Fit Note for less than 7 days

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, and under these circumstances a fee will be charged.

Many employers have their own self-certification forms. If your employer doesn’t have its own form you can download the Self Certification Form. (use the link below) Please print it, fill it in and hand it in to your employer. You do not need to see a Doctor.
