Private Employment & Educational Sickness Notes

What is a sick note?

If you have been feeling sick due to an illness or health condition you may need to take time off of work, or education. Here at Gogodoc, our GP’s can assess and issue you a sick note on the same day as your appointment. Please note we do not write private sick notes for longer than 14 days at a time and GP’s are unable to back-date the notes. Gogodoc is a private GP Service and does not provide Med3 notes. If you are required to provide this then you would need to obtain this from your NHS GP.

What happens during your consultation?

The doctor will assess you, and if they decide your health affects your fitness for work, they can issue a sick note. The doctor might need further information from you such as medication that you may be taking, or hospital or clinic attendance which can help in deciding how long you may need off or what adjustments can be made to allow you to continue working or studying without affecting your health.

Once your consultation is finished you will receive an invoice (will be an additional £30) which allows you to make payment for the certificate securely online. Once payment has been received we will issue your certificate.

All our certificates are on company headed paper, with the doctors full name and GMC registration number. They are signed and emailed to you as a PDF attachment.
