Sick certificates

Certificates for periods of sickness of less than seven days should be signed by the patient themselves, using form SC2, which is available from employers or the reception desk.  A doctor’s medical certificate is not required.  If your employer is insistent on a medical certificate then a charge will be made for a private sick note.  If you are self employed or unemployed then ask the receptionist for SC1.
