Sick (fit) notes

Sicknotes, or “Fitnotes” can be used not just to say what you can’t do, but also to show what activities you ARE able to carry out.

If your doctor gives you a note, you may or may not need to continue receiving them for some time.  It is not usually necessary to book a face to face appointment to request a repeat note.

They can be backdated, but cannot be postdated. For this reason, please do not request a continuation of your sick note more than 72 hrs before your current note runs out.

You can use e-Consult to request a repeat sicknote. Requests take 72 hours to process so please bear this in mind before attempting to collect.
