Med3 Fit Notes

7 days off sick or less

If you’re off work sick for 7 days or less, your employer should not ask for medical evidence that you’ve been ill. Instead they can ask you to confirm that you’ve been ill. You can do this by filling in a form yourself when you return to work. This is called self-certification.

More than 7 days off sick

Your employer will usually ask for a fit note – previously known as a sick note.

You don’t need a fit note if you are off work because of COVID-19. Instead, you can get an isolation note to send to your employer as proof you need to stay at home.

How to get a fit note

Complete this questionnaire and email to: BUCCG.UplandsMedicalPractice@nhs.net

Alternatively, print off, fill it in and drop it off at our practice reception. 

Requests can take up to 48 hours to complete. Send your form by email for the quickest turnaround.
