The health and care partnership for Staffordshire and Stoke-on-Trent, Together We’re Better, is holding five maternity focus groups across Staffordshire and Stoke-on-Trent over the coming month. We want to speak to new and expectant mothers, as well as anyone planning on having a baby and those working in maternity services, to listen to their views of maternity services across the patch.

The feedback gathered at these sessions will help us to shape local maternity services for the future.

We are asking that people register for a place via this registration form: https://nhs.researchfeedback.net/s.asp?k=157562410362. Spaces are limited, so we would urge people to register sooner rather than later.

More information can be found on the Together We’re Better website: https://www.twbstaffsandstoke.org.uk/news-and-events/308-help-shape-the-future-of-maternity-services-in-staffordshire-and-stoke-on-trent. If you have any questions please email TWBcomms@staffordshire.gov.uk.

Sickness Certificates

You do not require a doctor's sickness certificate for any illness lasting seven days or less. Your employer may however require you to complete a self-certification form (SC2) which is available from your employer or on the HMRC website.

Evidence that you are sick

If you are sick for more than seven days, your employer can ask you to give them some form of medical evidence to support payment of SSP (statutory sick pay).

It is up to your employer to decide whether you are incapable of work. A medical certificate, now called a 'Statement of Fitness for Work’ (see below) from your doctor is strong evidence that you are sick and would normally be accepted, unless there is evidence to prove otherwise.

You could also provide evidence from someone who is not a medical practitioner, e.g. a dentist. Your employer will decide whether or not this evidence is acceptable. If your employer has any doubts, they may still ask for a medical certificate from your GP.

Statement of Fitness for Work - ’Fit Note'

The 'fit note' was introduced on 6 April 2010. With your employer's support, the note will help you return to work sooner by providing more information about the effects of your illness or injury.
