Self Certification Sick / Fit Note for less than 7 days

If you have been ill for 7 days or less you don’t need to see a Doctor. You can complete a Self-Certification form yourself.

Many employers have their own self-certification forms. If your employer doesn’t have its own form you can fill out this form online from the Government website instead. Once you have completed the form you can download it and email it to your employer:

GOV: Ask your employer for Statutory Sick Pay

You do not need to see a Doctor.
