Please note, fit notes are not required for the first 7 calendar days of your illness and your LIVI GPs will not issue them within this time frame. Instead, you should self-certify by completing a form from your employer or via the gov.uk website. GPs at LIVI do not write private fit notes for longer than 14 days and they are unable to back-date the notes.
For patients eligible for the LIVI NHS service:
A LIVI GP will be able to write you a fit note if there is no requirement for a physical examination to issue the note. The GP will provide information on the fit note during the consultation.
For patients using the LIVI pay-as-you-go service (when it resumes):
A LIVI GP can write you a private fit note on the condition that there is no requirement for a physical examination to issue the note. It is up to each GP as to whether they feel a private fit note is suitable.
