Coronavirus (COVID-19) and requests for fit notes (Med3)
If you are requesting a sick note from your GP in relation to being off work, by law, medical evidence is not required for the first 7 days of sickness. For any period of illness less than 7 days you can self-certify.
In light of the emerging COVID-19 crisis it is likely a vast amount of people will be self-isolating in accordance with advice provided by Public Health England. In these cases, your GP will NOT be able to issue you a sick note. We expect your employer to be understanding towards the circumstances.
If you have been told to stay at home because of coronavirus and you need a note for your employer follow this link https://111.nhs.uk/isolation-note
General Practice is under a lot of pressure and needs to prioritise the healthcare needs of patients who are acutely unwell. We hope that you understand the current situation and sorry for any inconvenience caused.
