Covid-19 ‘Medical Sick Certification’ For Patients

Posted by: marcia - Posted on:

The current Government Guidance for Employers and Businesses on Coronavirus (Covid-19) States;

“By law, medical evidence is not required for the first 7 days of sickness. After 7 days, employers may use their discretion around the need for medical evidence if an employee is staying at home. We strongly suggest that employers use their discretion around the need for medical evidence for a period of absence where an employee is advised to stay at home either as they are unwell themselves, or live with someone who is, in accordance with the public health advices issued by the government.”


Until further guidance is available, Londonwide LMCs would suggest that if needed by patients they use this letter as the practice will not provide a medical certificate for patients requiring self-isolation for coronavirus. Please do not call the surgery to request a sick note, this is available for you to download from the ‘Our Documents’ section on the left hand side of this page where you can complete the form and hand to your employers.
