Fit Notes

When do I need a fit note?

Doctors issue fit notes to people to provide evidence of the advice they have given about their fitness for work. They record details of the functional effects of their patient’s condition so the patient and their employer can consider ways to help them return to work.

You only need a Fit Note if you are unable to work and are ill for longer than seven calendar days.
