This webinar will cover where we are now, why we are here and where we might be going with fit notes as well as outlining some practical hints and tips for all people involved; both now and in future.

The heading on a fit note makes it perfectly clear that it is a “Statement of Fitness for Work For social security or Statutory Sick Pay”. Many argue that the problems relating to the whole process for sickness absence in the UK would benefit from adherence to this intended role! In reality, the fit note utilised as a vehicle for communication of a variety of differing roles for a number of stakeholders. Within the next few months, the process of sickness certification is due to evolve as the Improving Lives 3-year project comes to fruition.
