Fit for Work Notes
Please note that Fit for Work notes are not available if you are off sick for 7 days or less. In this case you need an SC2 form (if you are an employee), obtainable from your employer, or an SC1 form (if you are unemployed or self-employed), available from the Benefits Office.
If you need a doctor’s note for less than 7 days absence, you will need a private sick note for which a fee is payable. School children cannot have state sick notes as they are not in employment or receiving state benefit.
