Sick notes

Posted on January 6th, 2022

*The rules below are a temporary change for individuals who are off sick between 10 December 2021 and 27 January 2022.*

The rules around sick leave has changed.

The government has announced that from 10 December 2021 onwards proof of illness for work is only required if an individual is off for more than 28 days. This means that doctors sick notes cannot be issued until a patient has been self-certified for 28 days. If you still require a sick note for your work before 28 day period the doctor can do a private sick note – but this will have a charge of £15.00. A sick note over 28 day self-certification a sick note would not have a charge.
