Sick Leave Verification

Employee Health & Sickness Certificates

Sickness certificates and employee health checks help both the company and the absentee, by reducing wait times and helping to speed recovery.

In 2013, 131 million working days were lost to sickness absence in the UK. The Walk-in Clinic team is here to help both employers and employees. We can verify sickness through examination by an independent doctor and provide a report at short notice.
We provide your employees with the opportunity to obtain a sickness certificate without having to wait for an appointment with their own GP. This can contribute to the reduction of absenteeism and / or presenteeism in the workplace.

Our services include:

  • Same-day appointments to limit the time your employees need to take off work
  • Urgent appointments for sick employees to speed their recovery
  • Telephone advice line to human resources departments
  • Same-day sickness certificates and reports
  • Long-term sick leave assessments
  • Fitness to work assessments
  • Formulation of a return to work programme

I have missed work due to illness. Under what circumstances do I need a doctor’s note?

Employees are required to obtain a sick note from a doctor after 7 missed days of work in a row (including non-work days or weekends).

What happens if I am sick during my holiday time?

If you can provide a doctor’s note for your illness, you will be able to take your sick days as sick leave instead of holiday.

What should I do in the case of a long-term sickness and absence from work?

You can ask your employer to refer you for a fitness-for-work assessment, which can help you with a timetable for returning to work, advice on how to manage and improve your condition, and evaluate your health in relation to your specific role.
