Hi I have been in hospital for 3 weeks. I worked one shift got sent home and this month I have been paid £30 to survive. If I got a sick note back dated would it be possible for the backpay to be paid to my bank?

    Hi 

    It all depends on if your employer pays sick pay but you may be entitled to statutory sick pay you need to discuss with your employer

    To get ssp you need to earn an average of £120 per week or more and provide a fit note you can self certify for the first 7 days 

    The first 3 days are not paid 

    If you are owed any pay it is unlikely you will get this until your next pay day

    Hi @hollykay113 :)

    Welcome to the community and thank you for sharing a little bit about your current situation. I'm sorry to hear that you've been in hospital for the past 3 weeks. That must have not been a nice experience, and I hope you're back home and settled now.

    As @janer1967 mentioned, I think it's best in this instance, to speak to your employer and ask them about sick pay entitlement. They should be able to provide you with further information about this, as sick pay can sometimes differ between different organizations/companies. 

    I will move your post into our 'work and employment' category, in the hope that our members will get back to you with some further advice :) 

    If you have any further questions, then please just let us know.
