You do not require a doctor's sickness certificate for any illness lasting seven days or less. Your employer may however require you to complete a self-certification form (SC2) which is available from your employer or on the HMRC website.
Evidence that you are sick
If you are sick for more than seven days, your employer can ask you to give them some form of medical evidence to support payment of SSP (statutory sick pay).
It is up to your employer to decide whether you are incapable of work. A medical certificate, now called a 'Statement of Fitness for Work’ (see below) from your doctor is strong evidence that you are sick and would normally be accepted, unless there is evidence to prove otherwise.
You could also provide evidence from someone who is not a medical practitioner, e.g. a dentist. Your employer will decide whether or not this evidence is acceptable. If your employer has any doubts, they may still ask for a medical certificate from your GP.
Statement of Fitness for Work – ‘Fit Note'
The 'fit note' was introduced on 6 April 2010. With your employer's support, the note will help you return to work sooner by providing more information about the effects of your illness or injury.

We have morning same day appointments; these are released at 8.00am when we open and are on a first come first served basis but we also retain a small number of same day appointments for the afternoon. These are released at 1.30pm. These appointments are on an automated timer and cannot be accessed before these times. These appointments are for issues that cannot wait a week or two.
Hub appointments at King Edward Hospital/St Marks Hospital
There is 7 day access to GP and Nurse appointments available Monday to Friday in the evening and at the weekends when our surgery is closed. This is not a walk in service and an appointment has to be booked via our reception team here at Sheet Street Surgery. When we book an appointment for the hubs we do have to ask the reason for the visit as there are a few exclusions that the hub cannot deal with. These perhaps may be easier for those patients that work full time or for those that rely on other people for transport but they are available for everyone. Please ask for a hub appointment when you call.
Please telephone the appointments line before 10.30am if you require a home visit.
A doctor or nurse may phone you back as it may be that your problem can be dealt with by telephone advice, or that it would be more appropriate to send a nurse, or arrange a hospital attendance.
Home visits are only available for patients who are housebound because of illness or disability.
Please remember that several patients can be seen in the practice in the time that it takes to make a home visit.
We have an outstanding team of nurses, who are qualified to deal with minor illness; such as colds, conjunctivits, earache, urine infections, rashes, contraception, coughs and dizziness.
We have a clinical pharmacist based in the surgery on Wednesday morning and all day Thursday if you have a query regarding medication.
A Musculoskeletal Consultant works on a Friday afternoon who can help you with back, neck, knee, joint, hip or shoulder pain; you can book directly in to see him, please ask when you call.
