Hi everyone and in particular poppy123456.
I have already reported a fit note to my employer and UC after shoulder surgery which was the 16th march. The fit note was for 6 weeks from the 16th march.
This has been accepted by UC on my journal and my employer. I have received a work capability assessment form to complete from UC which I am currently in the process of. I have today the 9th April been back to the outpatient clinic to see the consultant who performed the surgery and he has given me another fit note dated today 9th April for 3 months. If I report this new fit note to UC will it cause any issue the fact that this new fit note overlappes the original one. I go back to clinic in 3 months time.
Thanks for any advice

I have copied this into an existing conversation as well in case anyone reads that.
