Sick Certificates

We are aware that some employers sometimes ask employees to provide medical evidence to support sickness claims for periods of less than one week.

Please note that GP's are not required by law or by their contracts to provide sickness certificates for periods of less than one week. This practice does not provide such certificates under any circumstances.

We do however have a letter that you can give to your employer explaining this. You can download and print this letter using the link below or collect one from the reception desk.
