The vast majority of routine GP appointments are taking place remotely via video and telephone consultations and where patients need to be seen face-to-face, strict safety guidelines are always followed including the use of personal protective equipment (PPE). Patients will be booked by the doctor to attend the surgery when required.
It’s important that everybody looks after their physical and mental health during this pandemic and people should continue to contact their GP by phone in the usual way if they need help.
By law, medical evidence is not required for the first 7 days of sickness. After 7 days, it is for the employer to determine what evidence they require, if any, from the employee. This does not need to be fit note (Med 3 form) issued by a GP or other doctor.
Your employee will be advised to isolate themselves and not to work in contact with other people by NHS 111 or PHE if they are a carrier of, or have been in contact with, an infectious or contagious disease, such as COVID-19.
We strongly suggest that employers use their discretion around the need for medical evidence for a period of absence where an employee is advised to stay at home due to suspected COVID-19, in accordance with the public health advice being issued by the government.
