Fit Notes/Sick Notes

Statement of Fitness for Work – ‘Fit Note’

The ‘fit note’ was introduced on 6 April 2010. With your employer’s support, the fit note will help you return to work sooner by providing more information about the effects of your illness or injury.

If you need a regular sick note you can apply for these through our online Klinik service.  Simply click on the following link Fit Notes – Wistaria and Milford Surgeries

Covid-19 Isolation Note

Please DO NOT ask your GP for a fit note if you are off work due to Covid-19

If you are off work because of covid-19, you can get an isolation note to send to your employer as proof that you need to stay home.

If you are off work for 7 days or less, you DO NOT need to give your employer a fit note from a doctor.

When you return to work, your employer can ask you to confirm you’ve been off sick. You and your employer will need to agree on how you would do this.

Do you want a note to work with adaptions or phased return?

Any return to work adaptions or altered hours will need to be agreed with your employer.
