Evening all,just a quick question to those on UC.Just wondered if anybody had received a message towards the end of the final covid lockdown advising them that that for the time being they no longer needed to hand in fit notes(it was on for a short amount of time possibly 3 months)and this was to free up GPs and telephone appointments (or something along those lines).It has totally disappeared from my journal.

    Are you asking this question because there were gaps in your fit notes?

    During that time you should have been giving the details of your fit notes on your journal. Did you report a change of circumstances and report your health condition this way? If you did then it would have prompted it to ask for fit notes.

    Your journal will tell you if there’s any gaps in the fit notes.
