To help reduce the pressure on GPs during the booster programme, the regulation around fit notes has been amended temporarily.

  • Up to 26th January 2022 a fit note is no longer required until an absence is over 28 days
  • This applies to an absence that started on or after 17th December 2021
  • It will apply if an absence started before 17th December 2021 but had not reached 7 calendar days
  • It will not apply to an absence that starts on or after the 27th January 2022
