Fit Notes and 'Fit for Work'

Fit notes allow GPs to certify that an employee is either ‘not fit for work’ or ‘may be fit for work taking account of the following advice’ (in which case the GP will describe the effects of the condition with the option of setting out possible amendments to allow a return to work).

The government's Fit for Work scheme provides free occupational health advice for employees, employers and GPs via online resources and an advice line.
