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.

Our sick notes include:

  • 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

Want to know more about sick notes?

Can you provide a backdated sick note?

Our doctors can backdate a sick note (also known as a fit note) for up to 2 weeks. A sick note can sign you off work or education for up to 4 weeks.

It'll include details of when you'll be likely to return and any steps your employer or institution can take to help your return.

To get one, you need to book an online consultation with one of our doctors, and you may need to provide proof that you’ve been ill. We can send it to you by email or first class post.

Will my employer or educational institution accept your sick notes?

Our sick notes are just like the ones you would receive from your regular GP. They contain all the information needed by your employer or institution, including details of the issuing GP and their GMC (General Medical Council) number.

We also provide verification codes that can be used by your employer or institution to check the originality of sick notes by phone. This means you won't have to do anything else after you've given it to them.

Can you write referral letters?

Yes, our GPs can refer you to see a specialist.

The specialist can then book you in for further treatment, and any medical procedures you may need.

Your referral letter is sent via email or first class post, right after your appointment.
