NHS Leicester City Clinical Commissioning Group did not have the information requested.

Dear NHS Leicester City Clinical Commissioning Group,

Self-certificate /Sick-note

To my knowledge the GP issues sick-notes from the 7th day of illness to his patients- until that time by law a self-certificate is sufficient. Leicester City council does not accept these self-certificates, even so by law this matter is explained.
What is the situation regarding self certificates /sick-notes and Leicester City Council

Yours faithfully,

J. H.
