Sick/ Isolation notes
From Friday 20 March onwards, those who have COVID-19 or are advised to self-isolate will be able to obtain an “isolation note” by visiting NHS 111 online and completing an online form, rather than visiting a doctor.
Isolation notes will also be accepted by Jobcentre Plus as evidence of your inability to attend.
Guidance for those with Long Term Conditions
On 17th March the government published guidance on social distancing for people with long term conditions. The guidance strongly advises that patients should stay at home for some weeks.
A sick note/ GP letter is not required to permit absence from work due to these reasons.
