Fit notes are brought in by the Government in April.

The fit note means that when you go to the doctor, instead of having a sick note signing you off work, the GP will now decide whether you are fit for work with some support, and what employers can do to help them return to work, includeing things like changed hours, a phased return, fewer dudies or workplace adaptations.

The aim is to decrease the number of people on sickness and employment support benefits.
