Self Certification Sick / Fit Note for less than 28 days

Employees can take time off work if they’re ill. They need to give their employer proof if they’re ill for more than 28 days.

If they started their sick leave before 10 December 2021, they must give proof if they’ve been ill for more than 7 days.

If they’re ill just before or during their holiday, they can take it as sick leave instead.

Many employers have their own self-certification forms. If your employer doesn’t have its own form your can download this Self Certification Form (PDF). Please  print it, fill it in and hand it in to your employer. You do not need to see a Doctor.

If employees are self-isolating and cannot work because of coronavirus (COVID-19) they can get an ‘isolation note’ online from NHS 111. They do not have to go to their GP or a hospital.

Please telephone or visit your surgery if you’re injured, unwell or have an ongoing problem that cannot be treated at home.
