To claim Statutory Sick Pay for illness of 7 days or less, the patient may self-certify using the appropriate form (SC2) which is available from your employer or on the HMRC website. From the 8th day of sickness we are happy to provide statutory sick pay certificates. If your employer insists on a certificate for the first 7 days we will provide a private certificate. There will be a charge of £18 for this to be paid in advance of the certificate being produced.
Sometimes your GP will want to see you again once your sick note runs out to ensure the problem is sorted and you are fit to return to work in which case your GP will specify this on the sick note and discuss it with you. In most cases you will be assumed to be fit to return to work at the end of the sick note. You can return to work earlier than the sick notes states if your employer is informed and in agreement. There is no longer any note from your GP to say that you are fit to return to work. Sometimes employers ask for a note from your GP to say that you are fit for work. As this is no longer needed it would be something you or your employer would be charged for. The cost would be £18 and this should be paid in advance of the letter being produced.
