- Prescriptions for taking medicines abroad
- Private sick notes
- Vaccination certificates
- Doctors letters
The fees charged are based on the British Medical Association suggested scales and our reception staff will be happy to advise you about them along with appointments availability.
You do not require a doctor's certificate for any illness lasting 7days or less. Your employer may however require you to complete a self-certification form (SC2) which is available from your employer or on the HMRC website.
If you sick for more than 7days your employer can ask you to give them some form of medical evidence to support payment of SSP (statutory sick pay)
It is up to your employer to decide whether you are incapable of work. A medical certificate, (Statement of Fitness to work) from your doctor is strong evidence that you are sick and would normally be accepted, unless there is evidence to prove otherwise.
Statement of Fitness for Work - Fit note
The fit note was introduced on 6th April 2010. With your employer's support, the note will help you return to work sooner by providing more information about the effects of your illness or injury.
