Changes to Fit Note (aka Sick Note) rules

Dear Patients/ Employers

The Government (DWP) have recently changed the Statutory Sick Pay (SSP) and Fit Note rules. Previously after 7 days of Illness or Injury you could have requested a Fit Note from your GP if your Employer asked this of you. This has now changed to only after 28 days Illness or Injury. Please respect these changes. We will not be actioning any requests that fall before the 28 days.

Please share this guidance with your Employer if they question you. This new Government policy has come about due to the significant pressure the NHS is currently facing due to COVID. We will therefore not engage with private employment sick note/ medical requests either. Our focus is on NHS Primary Care.
