Sick/Fit Note Certificates
Self Certification Sick/Fit Note for less than 7 days
For any illness lasting seven days or less you do not require a doctor's sickness certificate. Your employer may however require you to complete a self-certification form (SC2) which is available from your employer or on the HMRC Website.
Doctor’s Sick/Fit Note for more than 7 days
If you're off work sick for more than 7 days, your employer will usually ask for a fit note (or Statement of Fitness for Work) from a GP or hospital doctor. Fit notes are sometimes referred to as medical statements or a doctor's note.
