Get an Isolation Note
Use this service if you have been told to self-isolate because of coronavirus and you need a note for your employer.
This service is only for people who:
- have symptoms of coronavirus and have used the 111 online coronavirus service
- have been told by a healthcare professional they have symptoms of coronavirus
- live with someone who has symptoms of coronavirus
If you are not sure if you need to self-isolate, get the latest NHS advice on coronavirus.
If you have to stay at home but feel well enough to work, ask your employer if you can work from home. If you can work from home, you will not need an isolation note.
You can also use this service for someone else.

Self Certification Sick/Fit Note for less than 7 days
If you have been ill for 7 days or less you don’t need to see a doctor. You can complete a Self-Certification form yourself. However some employers insist on a doctor’s note regardless. A doctors note under these circumstances involves a charge of £10.
Many employers have their own self-certification forms. If your employer doesn’t have its own form you can download the Self Certification Form. Please print it, fill it in and hand it in to your employer. You do not need to see a doctor.
Additional Sick Note
Click here to download a Med3 Request Form if you have been signed off work for 6 weeks or more and would like to query this with your GP. You can either pop this in the post, or put it in our prescriptions box(es) in the surgery. Please allow 5 working days to complete your request.
Doctor’s Sick/Fit Note for more than 7 days
If you have been ill for more than 7 days you will need a doctor’s certificate. These certificates are called ‘Fitness to Work’ Certificates.
The doctor may call you or arrange for an appointment.
If you have already been seen by your doctor about this illness your certificate will be sent to you within a week.
Requesting an additional Sick/Fit Note
If you have already had a Sick Note (Fit Note) for this illness your doctor may not need to see you to issue an additional Sick Note. Please complete this form. We will contact you to let you know when you can collect your Sick / Fit Note or we may contact you to arrange an appointment.
