How to get a sick note for work

The NHS provides sickness certification only after seven continuous days of illness.  If you need a sick note to cover this period of sickness you should complete a Self-Certification (SC2) form which is available from your employer or on the HMRC website.

Please contact the GP surgery via Klinik and we will let you know if you need an appointment with a health care professional or not.

No. You do not need to see your GP again to be ‘signed back to work’.
