Your doctors responsibility is to provide a sick note after the first week of absence if there is a medical need.
In return we ask you to...
- Not request sick notes for the first seven days of absence and to appreciate that the Doctor has a responsibility to the DSS to justify sick certificates. Self certificates are available at our reception.
- If you are unemployed or self-employed we can provide the appropriate form.
- If you do require note for the first week of illness you may do so with a fee.
