If the sick note is for less than 7 days, the patients can self certify, in the instance their manager at work insist’s of requiring a doctors note for less than 7 days, that is payable at £30.00.
If the sick note is more than 7 days there is no charge payable. (unless it’s a private sick note then again a fee of £30)
Many employers have their own self-certification forms. If your employer doesn’t have its own form your 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.
