Sick notes

What if I’m sick for less than a week?

 

What are sick notes?

If you’re off work sick for more than 7 days, your employer will usually ask for a sick note (also referred to as a fit note or Statement of Fitness for Work) from a healthcare professional.

You can use an online form to request a new sick note. Alternatively, you can call us on 0151 638 9333. We will need to know the details of your request such as the start and end date of your sick note and the reason for it.

Sick notes can be collected from the reception desk after being processed, or we can send you a digital copy of your sick note via a text message – please let our reception team know which method you would prefer.

 

What if I’m sick for less than a week?

If you are sick for less than a week (5 working days), you do not need a sick note from a doctor and can instead complete a Statutory Sick Pay form. More information can be found here at the GOV.UK website.
