CORONAVIRUS - SICK NOTES Posted on 21 Aug 2020

Digital isolation note for patients now available online.

A new online system, created by the NHS and the Department for Work and Pensions, is now live for patients to be emailed a digital isolation note. 

Isolation notes provide patients with evidence for their employers that they have been advised to self-isolate due to coronavirus, either because they have symptoms or they live with someone who has symptoms, and so cannot work. 

‚ÄčAs isolation notes can be obtained without contacting a doctor, this will reduce the pressure on GP surgeries and prevent people needing to leave their homes. The notes can be accessed through the NHS website and NHS 111 online After answering a few questions, an isolation note will be emailed to the user. If they do not have an email address, they can have the note sent to a trusted family member or friend, or directly to their employer. The service can also be used to generate an isolation note on behalf of someone else.

Guidance for employees on COVID-19 can be found on the GOV.UK website.
