Medical Certificates

GPs are not obliged to provide their patients with sick certification for illnesses of seven days or less. Your employer should have a supply of self certification forms (SC1/SC2), which you should complete on return to work. If your employer requests a medical certificate for less than seven days illness this would require an appointment with a GP and would incur a private fee. These fees are payable at the time of consultation but might be reimbursed by your employer.
