Medical Certificates

NHS Certificates are only issued, after the first week of illness. During the first week (5 working days/ first 7 days) you are advised to obtain a Self Certificate from the DHSS or your employer.

Continuation sick notes for long term conditions may be subject to a review every 6 months. In these cases you will be required to book an appointment with the doctor to assess your long term condition.

Private Certificates will be issued for the first week for which a fee is chargeable. NHS Certificates will not be issued for Court Attendances.
