Not sure if anybody will be able to help, but I had a laparoscopy on Tuesday (early evening). I predicted my work would be difficult and had asked my surgeon if she could provide a note. Unfortunately she left on Tuesday evening without doing it. However she has emailed over a letter to me yesterday stating that I had surgery and she recommended two weeks off work for post-op recovery. I forwarded this onto my boss.
I've now been received an email from my boss where HR are saying I need a 'fit note' from my GP for sick pay purposes, then my boss has said that I need to self cert for the first 7 days then get the 'fit note' from the GP. It seems they aren't accepting the email from my consultant. What can I do?
