Coronavirus (COVID-19) update

If you have symptoms of coronavirus and need to stay at home, click here to use the 111 coronavirus service to get an isolation note to give to your employer.

If you live with someone who has symptoms of coronavirus, click here to get an isolation note to give to your employer.

You do not need to get a note from a GP for coronavirus/COVID-19, and we cannot provide letters/notes for this.


You do not require a doctor's sickness certificate for any illness lasting seven days or less. Your employer may however require you to complete a self-certification form (SC2) which is available from your employer or on the HMRC website. The practice does not issue self certification forms.

If you are in hospital, they will usually provide you with a sick note if appropriate. If necessary, this can be extended by us when you return home.


Evidence that you are sick

If you're sick and off work for more than seven days, you will require a sick note from us - please ask to book an appointment with a GP.

If you want to see a doctor solely to extend a sick note, you may not have to come in to do this. Please check with the receptionist whether an appointment is necessary.

Private sick notes: If you want a note to confirm sickness within the first 7 days (self-certification period) of absence this will require a private note for which a fee is due.
