Med3 Requests

Employees must give their employer a ‘fit note’ (sometimes called a ‘sick note’) if they’ve been ill for more than 7 days in a row and have taken sick leave. This includes non-working days, such as weekends and bank holidays.

The fit note will say the employee is either ‘not fit for work’ or ‘may be fit for work’.

If it says the employee ‘may be fit for work’, employers should discuss any changes that might help the employee return to work (for example, different hours or tasks). The employee must be treated as ‘not fit for work’ if there’s no agreement on these changes.

Employers can take a copy of the fit note. The employee should keep the original.

Please call the surgery if you would like to request an extension of an original sicknote that has been previously issued but has now expired. To complete this request we will send you a Fit Note Florey questionnaire that you will need to complete. This is then saved to your record and sent to your doctor for consideration of extension of your current sick note. 

Call 01509 261843 – Inform a member of our team that you wish to request an extension of a med3, we will send you a Florey questionnaire to fill out and return to us. We then forward this on to the clinician to consider issuing an extension.
