Government consults on replacing “sick notes” with “fit notes”

The Government intends to replace sick notes. On the current form, the GPs can either state that the patient is either fit or not fit to work. The new form will allow GPs to indicate that patients may be fit for some work.

Consultations end on 19 August 2009.
