Before a Medical Certicate (Sick line) is issued, the Doctor will normally need to see the patient to discuss their illness.
A Fitness to Work certificate is not normally issued for the 1st weeks absence from work; you can submit to your employer an SC2 form (Statutory Sick Pay Employees Statement of Sickness) which you can complete youself without having to see a Doctor.
These can be downloaded from the HMRC website of by clicking on the link below.
Patients requiring a Repeat Sick Line can request this from Reception. We would like to remind you that we are unable to forward date sick lines.
