Patients can tell their Employers they’ve been off sick for up to 28 days without needing a note from the GP. This is called ‘self-certification’. The Practice will only provide a Sick Note (MED3 Certificate) after a patient has been sick after 28 continuous days. This will take 2 working days to process.
For more information regarding sick leave, please visit the official government website: Taking Sick Leave
Renewal of an existing Sick notes will also take 2 working days to process by the GP.
You do not necessarily need to see the GP to get a sick note. Please contact the surgery for more details.
