Temporary changes to Fit notes and proof of sickness

If employees are off work for 28 days or less (with the absence starting after the 10th December 2021), they do not need to give their employer a fit note or other proof of sickness from a medical professional. Due to current pressures and demand the surgery will not be issuing FIT or sick notes for patients who come under the new temporary rules.
