Sick Certificates



If you have been absent from work because of illness you should obtain self-certification form, from your employer, DSS or from the surgery. 


You are not entitled to a MED 3 (NHS certificate) until your illness has caused you to be absent for seven days or more. 


Upon assessment via GP, if a sick certificate is issued, the maximum period will be one month only.  After this time you will have to be re assessed.
