Self certification forms for the first seven days of illness are obtainable as follows:
- SC2 (for employed) from your employer or DSS or the surgery
- SC1 (for self employed or unemployed) from the DSS
- Continuation certificate to be requested between 2.00pm and 5.00pm daily.
If you are sick longer than this you must see the doctor in order to obtain a continuation medical certificate, now called a Fit Note. Private health certificates for which a fee is payable are still issued if needed. Please ask the receptionist.
PLEASE NOTE THERE IS AT LEAST A 48 HOUR TURNAROUND FOR FIT NOTES, LONGER IF THE GP IS NOT AVAILABLE. UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCE WILL FIT NOTES BE ISSUED ON AN EMERGENCY APPOINTMENT
