Temporary measures in regard to sickness absence

Dear patients, 

This is to let you know that the Government has implemented temporary measures in regard to sickness absence, increasing the period of self-certification (before you need a doctor’s fit/isolation note) from 7 days to 28 days. 

The change applies to the period between 10 December 2021, up to, and including 26 January 2022, so please do not contact our practice for a fit note if the updated criteria applies to your situation.
