You only need a doctor’s note if you are unable to work and are ill for longer than seven calendar days. Your employer will provide you with an SC2 self-certificate form for shorter periods of illness.
We are now changing the way we process Med3/sick note requests. We now ask that you complete this form and return to the surgery via email or paper form. Please allow as much time as possible for this request to be fulfilled.
If your request is urgent, we would like to reassure you that doctors can backdate your sickness absence.
Please contact the surgery for more information.
