The sick note is no more

From 6 April this year, UK employers will no longer be presented with the traditional sick note setting out the reason for an employee's absence. Instead, GPs will produce "fit notes" which will focus on the work that an ill person is able to do, rather than what they are unable to do. The GP may provide additional comments on the patient's state, including on the functional effects of the patient's condition.
