You only need a doctor’s note if you are unable to work and are ill for longer than seven calendar days. Your employer will provide you with an SC2 self-certificate form for shorter periods of illness. You will need to see the Doctor for your initial note and they may be able to obtain via a telephone call if on long term sick and approved by the Doctor but you will be asked periodically to come in to be reviewed.
We do not have copies of SC2 self- certification forms in our reception.
If you need a private sick certificate you will be charged a £10 fee, which is in line with BMA approved national guidelines and is displayed in the surgery.
