    A sick note details your health condition and ability to work and is issued by a UK Doctor after an assessment.

    After completing a short questionnaire, our doctors will review your submission on the same day (between 9am and 9pm GMT, 7 days a week) - prior to validating your certificate.

    In the UK - you can 'self-certify' up to 7 days of sickness without the requirement to see a Doctor or provide your workplace with a Med3 Fit note.
