Request a sick note

Sick Notes / Statement of Fitness for Work

General guidance for patients:

Doctors providing general medical services under the National Health Services Acts are required, under the Social Security Acts, to issue free of charge a Form Med 3 (Statement of Fitness for Work) to patients for whom they provide clinical care.

Doctors may also issue the Statement of Fitness for Work after consideration of a written report from another doctor or registered healthcare professional ( for example, nurses, occupational therapists, physiotherapists), if they consider it appropriate.

Please Note:

You do not require a doctor's sickness certificate for any illness lasting seven days or less. Your employer may however require you to complete a self-certification form (SC2) which is available from your employer or on the HMRC website.

For patients who are on long-term sick, we require three working days notice to renew their sick notes.
