GPs are signing 7% more fit notes than a year ago

Comment

We are finding that employers are refusing to get involved or accept SC2 and so patients are demanding Med3 from day one. Attempts to refuse or offer private private sick notes resulted in so much abuse towards the reception staff that we just provide them. Thirty seconds of my time to not lose another receptionist who cant face more patient abuse is worth it.
