Hello I have just visited the Doctors.  I needed a sick note it runs out next weekend.  I did not know this but sick notes can not be issued ahead .  I just thought with the sick note ending on a weekend I would thought be time it is issued to me.  Sent off it would have arrived probably end of next week.  Problem is I forgot once to get one and they suspended everything from housing benefit to my benefits.  While I had to send one in.  I tried once to ring them up but how hard is it to give a reminder to everyone to send one in.  Am be being practical and sensible.  Doctors appointment in about weeks time I am hoping they the DWP do not do this again
