Sickness Certificates

 

Rules for Sickness Certification

cold

You can certify yourself off work for the first 7 days of an illness (including the weekend using a self-certification form (SC1) if self-employed and (SC2) if employed).

You can get an SC1/2 from your work or from your local Revenue and Customs (Tax) Office.

You can download one from www.hmrc.gov.uk/employers/fagsc2.shtml. If your work requires you to have a sick-note during this time a private sick-note will be issued at a cost of £15.00.

If you  need to continue to be absent from work after 7 days the Doctor will issue you with a Statement of Fitness for Work Med 3 04/10.

The Doctors assessment may be:-

   1.   Face to face

   2.   Telephone

   3.   Consideration of a written report from another Doctor or  Registered Health Care Professional.
