    Got issued a sick note today from the doctors for a week. I had to go today as only day I could be taken, even though my self cert note does not offically run out till Sunday, so I would have returned to work on Monday. The doctor issued one today ( though did say could go back next week if no better) When will I have to return back to work? Next Friday? I am getting very confused.
  2. Has the doctor put a date to return at the bottom or just said 1 week? If the doctor has said a date, you go back then.
    If not, you go back to work the day AFTER the cert runs out. So, yes, it would be next Friday, unless you need to revisit doc next week and get another cert.
    HTH and that you feel better soon!

    Thanks. Thought it was but than thought not. Must be the painkillers playing with my mind:(
    Hopefully will not have to go back to docs, wishful thinking on my part but min over matter and all that. Once I can take edge off pain will be back at work.

    Incidentally note said week no date.
