Fit Notes

If you need it for your employer you can obtain an isolation note by visiting NHS 111 online, rather than contacting a doctor. For COVID-19 cases this replaces the usual need to provide a fit note (sometimes called a sick note) after 7 days of sickness absence.

We have been receiving a number of questions from patients regarding their ability to work due to the current Covid-19 outbreak.

If you have a query as to which group you fall into and are very concerned you may contact reception. We will usually SMS (text) a simple reply but this may not be the same day.

We are sorry but due to the extreme pressure on the NHS currently we are NOT able to:

  • Write any letters
  • Speak to individual patients about this
  • Do private reports for employers or employees.

A fit note is an official written statement from a doctor giving their medical opinion on a person's fitness for work. They might also make recommendations for how the employer could support the employee.

You can still request these on e-consult, or via our reception as in the past.
