Self-Certification - Fit Note for less than 7 days
If you have been ill for 7 days or less you DO NOT need to see a Doctor. You do not need a Sick Note from the Doctor. You can complete a Self-Certification form yourself. Many employers have their own self-certification forms. If your employer doesn’t have its own form you can complete the generic government Self Certification Form online.
Please print it, fill it in and hand it in to your employer. You do not need to see a Doctor.
