Sick Note to Fit Note

A new ‘fit note’ is going to be introduced in place of the doctor’s sick note on 6 April 2010.  With your employer's support, the note will help you return to work sooner by providing more information about the effects of your illness or injury.

The new fit note will be called the ‘Statement of Fitness for Work’ and will be used in England, Scotland and Wales. It will have more information than the present doctor’s sick note.

The main changes will mean:

  • your GP will be able to say if they think you are ‘not fit for work’ or ‘may be fit for work’
  • your GP can add advice to the note for your employer on how simple changes to the job you do may allow you to return to work earlier
  • there will be fewer kinds of medical statements forms issued by GPs

NHS Tayside Electronic Health Record
What is an NHS Tayside Electronic Health Record?

 

NHS Scotland believes that clinical services need medical information held electronically to deliver you healthcare that is safe, efficient, effective and patient centred. 

The Electronic Health Record will provide important information to the doctors and nurses looking after you. They will use this information to help them plan and discuss the safest and best care for you.
