If you have been unfortunate enough to be unwell enough to be off from work, your employer or University may ask for a sick note. This can be for mental and physical health problems. Sick notes can also be referred to as Fit Note, Med 3 certificates, or Doctors Note.

During your consultation, your Doctor will assess and examine you, and the nature of your work. Provided that they agree that you would not be fit to work due to your current illness, they can provide a sick note to cover short periods of illness.
