Private fit (sick) notes

You can self-certify for the first 7 days you are off sick from work.

If you’ve been sick for less than 7 days, we can provide a private fit note (also known as a sick note) to give to your employer.

​​Babylon fit notes aren’t valid for social security or statutory pay purposes. But, your own NHS practice can issue fit notes if you're off work sick for more than 7 days, which are valid for social security and statutory pay purposes. 

Getting a private fit (sick) note

Book an appointment with one of our clinicians that can issue fit notes.

If they think a fit note is needed, they’ll create one shortly after your appointment.

You can view and download your fit note in the Babylon app.
