Fit Notes

When appropriate, we issue electronically generated Fit Notes.

We have been notified by the Health and Social Care Information Centre (HSCIC) that, with effect from February 2016, they will be extracting data on fit note usage. This data will be made available to the Department for Work and Pensions (DWP) so that the Fit for Work service can be evaluated and for policies to be developed as necessary.

The data being collected will be fully anonymised and will include:

  • The number of computer-generated fit notes issued
  • The number of patients recorded as "unfit" or "may be fit" for work
  • Fit note duration
  • Gender
  • Health conditions giving rise to fit notes being issued.

At no stage will patient identifiable information be extracted.
