This will be put to the Doctor who last signed you off and they will assess if you will be issued with a further note or need to be reviewed again. This decision will be within two days. If the Doctor has signed a further sick note, then this will be available from reception to collect. If you need to be reviewed, you will need to make an appointment to be seen.
