Sickness Certificates

Under current legislation a Patient can "self certificate" for the first 7 days of any illness. The self certficate form (Form SC2) is available from the DSS office, your employer or by clicking here. We do not normally issue doctors certificates for the first week.

If you do require a doctors certificate for the first week of your illness we can provide this as a private service, for which there will be a fee.

After the first week, if you require a free Statement of Fitness for Work (Fit note), please make an appointment as these are obtained as part of a consultation with a doctor.

A receipt will be issued if requested.
