Welcome To Oakwood Surgery

"We place or patients at the centre of all we do, by being compassionate and caring and being efficient and accurate / working efficiently and accurately’’.  

 

Fit notes and proof of sickness (new Guidance from GOV.UK)

Employees must give their employer a doctor’s ‘fit note’ (sometimes called a ‘sick note’) if they’ve been ill for more than 28 days in a row and have taken sick leave. This includes non-working days, such as weekends and bank holidays.

If they started their sick leave before 10 December 2021, they must give proof if they’ve been off work for more than 7 days, including non-working days.

If employees are self-isolating and cannot work because of coronavirus (COVID-19) they can get an ‘isolation note’ online from NHS 111. They do not have to go to their GP or a hospital.

If they are off work with any other illness, they can get a fit note from a GP or hospital doctor. If their employer agrees, a similar document can be provided by a physiotherapist, podiatrist or occupational therapist instead. This is called an Allied Health Professional (AHP) Health and Work Report.

Fit notes are free if the employee has been ill for more than 28 days when they ask for one. The doctor might charge a fee if they ask for the fit note earlier.

If the employee’s illness started before 10 December 2021, they can get a free fit note after 7 days.

The fit note will say the employee is either ‘not fit for work’ or ‘may be fit for work’.

If it says the employee ‘may be fit for work’, employers should discuss any changes that might help the employee return to work (for example, different hours or tasks). The employee must be treated as ‘not fit for work’ if there’s no agreement on these changes.

Employers can take a copy of the fit note. The employee should keep the original.

Self-certification

If employees are off work for 28 days or less, they do not need to give their employer a fit note or other proof of sickness from a medical professional.

If the period of sickness started before 10 December 2021, employees do not have to provide a fit note if they are off work for 7 days or less.

When they return to work, their employer can ask them to confirm they’ve been off sick. This is called ‘self-certification’. The employer and employee will agree on how the employee should do this. They might need to fill in a form or send details of their sick leave by email.

 Understanding General Practice

Following negative and damaging coverage about general practice in the media, our Chief Executive Michael Wright, has produced a video to help patients understand some of the unique challenges that practices face daily.
