If you have been ill for 7 days or less you do not require a sick/fit note as 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 your can download this Self Certification Form (PDF). Please print it, fill it in and hand it in to your employer. You do not need to see a Doctor.
Please telephone or visit your surgery if you’re injured, unwell or have an ongoing problem that cannot be treated at home.
