    As you've been found to have LCWRA then no further fit notes are needed. I'm going to say that this is an error, which has been known to happen many times, in fact it even happened to my daughter back in Dec 2021 and the "provide a fit note" still remains on her "to do list" It may also be linked to when your last fit note expired so the system may have just detected it expired and they haven't switched that off. 

    Put a message onto your journal and remind them that you have LCWRA and shouldn't be asked to provide a fit note.
    I would appreciate it if members wouldn't tag me please. I have all notifcations turned off and wouldn't want a member thinking i'm being rude by not replying.
    If i see a question that i know the answer to i will try my best to help.
