At Cholmley Gardens Medical Centre, we understand that there are times when illness or medical conditions may prevent you from attending work, school, or other commitments. In such situations, it’s essential to provide your employer, educational institution, or other relevant parties with a sick note (also known as a medical certificate or fit note) as proof of your inability to work or study due to a medical condition.

We are here to assist our patients in obtaining sick notes efficiently and effectively, ensuring you receive the necessary support during your period of illness.

How Can We Help You Acquire a Sick Note?

  1. Medical Assessment: If you are unwell and require a sick note, the first step is to schedule an appointment with one of our experienced doctors. During your consultation, our healthcare professionals will assess your condition, provide medical advice, and discuss your specific needs regarding time off work or school.

  2. Issuance of Sick Note: Based on the assessment and the doctor’s recommendations, if it is deemed necessary, a sick note will be issued. This note will detail the duration for which you are medically unfit for work or study and any specific recommendations for your employer or school.

  3. Flexible Options: We understand that visiting the practice may not always be convenient when you’re unwell. In certain cases, our doctors may issue a sick note remotely, depending on the nature of your condition and our assessment.

  4. Extended Sick Notes: If your illness continues beyond the initial period stated in your sick note, please do not hesitate to reach out to us. We can provide extensions or revised notes as needed, ensuring your continued access to the support you require.
