The Doctor’s note is referred to as a Fit Note. Your GP is entitled to charge you for a Fit Note when the illness has been for 7 days or less.
It is not always necessary to visit your Doctor in order to receive a Fit Note.
Please complete this form. Someone will be in touch from the practice to explain when you will receive the Fit Note and to arrange payment.
We are not issuing sick notes for those patients with coronavirus. Please note if you need to provide evidence to your employer that you need to stay at home due to coronavirus, you will be able to get this from the NHS 111 Online instead of having to get a fit note from your doctor.
