Medical Certificates


A medical certificate can only be issued after you have been seen by a doctor.

1 - 7 days illness
  • A Medical Certificate is not required for the first seven days of an illness (including a weekend). Please instead use an employer's form or an SC2 self-certification form which you can get from a Post Office or from www.hmrc.gov.uk

  • If a signed certificate is requested to cover this period, then a private certificate can be issued by the doctor but there will be a charge.


8+ days illness
  • After the first week, a Med3 medical certificate may be obtained as part of the consultation with the doctor. The Med3 certificate is free of charge.


Statement of Fitness for Work or 'Fit Note'
  • Sick notes changed to 'Fit Notes' in April 2010.
  • What is the fit note? The Statement of Fitness for Work, or 'fit note', is a new Medical Statement. It replaces the old 'sick note' and aims to focus on what an employee may be able to do at work rather than what they cannot do.
  • In the past GPs have either said that 'you should refrain from work' or 'you need not refrain from work'. The fit note offers a new option - 'may be fit for work taking account of the following advice'. 

    A GP will be able to suggest ways of helping an employee get back to work. This might mean discussing:

    • a phased return to work
    • flexible working
    • amended duties
    • workplace adaptations.

    The GP will also provide general details of the functional effect of the individual's condition.
