ABOUT SICK NOTES
Getting to the doctors when you’re under the weather can be difficult - so we'll make sure you get your sick note, officially referred to as a fit note, quickly by email or first-class post.
Your employer or institution can verify these directly with us, which means you won't need to do anything else.
Our sick notes include:
- Recommendations about how and when you'll be able to return to work or education
- Whether you're able to return to work with amended duties (e.g. no heavy lifting or reduced hours)
- Suggestions on workplace adaptations that could help with your return to work
- Detailed advice about managing your medical issue in the workplace
- Instructions on how your employer or institution can authenticate the validity of the sick note.
