Fit notes for 7 days or less
If you expect to be ill for 7 days or less, your GP won't give you a sick note. But you can still self-certify your illness by completing the statement of sickness form on the HMRC website. Give it to your employer as proof of illness and to claim your Statutory Sick Pay (SSP).
