Fit Notes (Formerly Known as Sick Notes)
If you are an employee and have been off sick from work for four or more days in a row or up to seven days, you will need to complete an SC2 (self-certification) form in order to claim statutory sick pay (SSP) from your employer. The SC2 form can be obtained from the surgery at reception.
If you have been off sick from work for more than seven days, your employer will usually ask you to supply evidence that you have been ill by obtaining a “Fit Note” (this in effect serves the same purpose as a Sick Note) from the Doctor. Details of exactly what a "Fit Note" is can be found by clicking here.
