Sick Certificates (MED3)

You only need a Statement of Fitness for Work (MED3) if you are unable to work and are ill for longer than seven calendar days. Your employer will provide you with an SC2 self-certificate form for shorter periods of illness.

To request a Statement of Fitness for Work form, you will need an appointment with a clinician, or you can request this via our e-Consult service here: Consult Online from Home – The Avenue Surgery (

Please do not email requests for sick notes to the surgery, these will not be actioned or replied to.
