Request a sick note for less than 7 days

You do not require a doctor’s sickness certificate for any illness lasting seven days or less. Your employer may however require you to complete a self-certification form (SC2) which is available from your employer or on the HMRC website.

If you require a private sick note, you will be charged a fee.

Request a sick note for more than 7 days
