Doctors backdating medical certificates
Usually when I take a day off sick its because I'm really sick, not just a little sniffle.
I have never had to get a med cert in the past but with my current employee I now have to.
Instead they can ask you to confirm that you've been ill.
You can do this by filling in a form yourself when you return to work. If you're off work sick for more than seven days your employer will normally ask for a fit note (or Statement of Fitness for Work) from your GP or hospital doctor.
Other times medical criteria are presented voluntarily by an applicant in a self-assessment, without either a doctor or access to the person's medical record.
The doctor also certified his patient fit for light duties for one month from Sep 5 – the day after his surgery.
Your doctor will assess you, and if they decide your health affects your fitness for work, they can issue a fit note and advise either that: Your doctor will choose the "may be fit for work" option if they think that you are able to do some work even if it not your usual job – with support from your employer.
Discuss this advice with your employer to see if you can return to work.
There is a separate page on our website giving details about Student sickness certification.
If you're off work sick for seven days or less, your employer shouldn't ask for medical evidence that you've been ill.
