  6. Users who sustained a medical emergency and need urgent in-person attention from a doctor or healthcare professional cannot benefit from a Get Sick Cert sick note.

  14. This medical certificate is not suitable to account for illnesses that are side effects of certain drugs or medical treatments.

We can send your medical sick cert, reviewed and signed by a UK-registered doctor, in less than 24-hours. However, it will take a few days if you are planning to take a leave for an extended period of up to 5 days. If the doctor has to call you for further information, it may take a little longer. We constantly emphasise the need to provide as much precise and correct information as possible to minimise any delays in the review.

At Get Sick Cert we have devised a simple yet highly effective process to assess genuine cases of minor illnesses. We have allied with a network of UK-certified doctors who manually assess the forms, which is always confidential and consistent. The doctor might even directly call you over the phone or connect over video call to make sure of your condition and sign the document with up close verification.

All Get Sick Cert medical certifications follow the guidelines under the Statutory Holiday Entitlement as per UK corporate law. Employees and university students can obtain a health certificate for “unwell to work” directly from a UK-registered GP after formally assessing their health conditions in a formal setting. Over the months, we have helped hundreds of people in the UK with their sick leave accruals. There is practically no reason for your employer not to accept this document since it is legally compliant.

Our certificates are applicable in all regions across the United Kingdom.

  • Our prices begin at £19.99. You can also look into our special case prices on our form page.
  1. This sick certificate only proves that you were medically unable to work.
  2. This certificate only covers short-term leaves from two to five days. It does not cover any extended leaves beyond the time period.
  3. This certificate cannot cover more than a single sick leave period in a week or within 7 days. It cannot cover more than two leave periods in a single month, or 30 days.
  4. Get Sick Cert sick notes do not cover extended sick leaves for more than 5 days in a row. It cannot be clubbed with any leave policies, such as parental leave and compassionate leave.
  5. Get Sick Cert only offers private sick certificates to adhere to sick policies of private companies or maintain performance at university. The document cannot suffice for obtaining any benefits from social welfare.
  6. We do not cover the “Fitness to Work” certification. We recommend visiting a GP in person; that is more appropriate.
  7. Please note that we will only issue medical certificates for a current minor illness. Requests for previous dates (i.e., for an illness no longer ongoing) will be rejected. We are unable to backdate a medical certificate.
  8. The service is not designed for medical emergencies. For urgent care needs, the best course of action is to visit your nearest GP or emergency department in the UK.

Unfortunately, we do not provide refunds since the Get Sick Cert platform, although an online procedure, operates precisely like a GP’s clinic. Your payment is for the GP’s appointment to go through your medical questionnaire. You aren’t purchasing the document. If the GP discovers that you are not truly ill, they may reject your application. The same way it works in the clinic. In such cases, refunds are not entertained.

Please double-check your requested dates as well as your personal and medical details during your initial request. In the event that you realise you mistakenly provided the wrong information, you can request changes during the review process or after the certificates are issued. The updating services will attract a fee of £9.99.
