You are allowed up to seven working days off work through illness without a social security certificate. Ask the receptionist for a self-certification form SC1 if you are unemployed or SC2 if you are an employee. If your employer requires a certificate from you during this period, we can issue you with a private certificate for which there is a charge.
You do not require a fit to work certificate on return to work.
You do not require a Sick Note from your doctor for your child if they have missed school or suffer illness during an exam – we have a standard letter if your school requests this as it is not part of NHS services.
