When do I need a sickness report? What Broadgate Clinic London Wall offer
Broadgate Clinic London Wall is not only one of the foremost private walk-in health clinics in London, we are also one of the top suppliers of occupational health programs too. If your company subscribes to one of these plans, you may from time to time need us to provide a sickness report for your return to work. Alternatively, your employer may commission us to provide a blanket monthly sickness report of total staff absences for that month, complete with reasons, and where known, causes.
The legal need for sickness reports
If you are ill and off work for 7 days or less, your employer should not ordinarily ask you for a sick note. If you’re off-work for longer than 7 days, then your employer has the right to expect you to give them a sick note. The 7 day “benchmark” includes weekends and banks holiday if they fall within the sickness period.
Fit Notes, Sick Notes and Doctor’s Notes
Fit notes, sick notes, or doctor’s notes (they all amount to the same thing) must be issued by a qualified medical practitioner. You would normally obtain one by visiting your GP when you are sick or injured, so that your GP can examine you, and if it is judged that you are not fit for work, sign you-off for a number of days appropriate to your expected recovery time, and issue you with an official sick note.
