Temporary change to sick/fit notes

The Department of Work and Pensions are making legislative changes meaning that from 10th December 2021 self-certification for sickness will be extending from 7 to 28 days for people accessing statutory sick pay, and there will be no requirement for a fit note to access other benefits. This time limited change will end on 26th January 2022.
