Medical evidence is not required for first 7 days of authorised absence or sickness absence and you can self-certify yourself using the appropriate form. After 7 days, please contact your line manager for further advice if you are unable to obtain a medical certificate.

To make it easier for employees to provide evidence to their employer, NHS are developing an alternative form of evidence to the fit note. NHS confirmed that these will shortly be available through NHS online. We will update you once this form has been developed and is available.
