Hi. I have been told to keep getting fit notes until my assessment. .. 
What if the renew date is on a weekend. And once asked for how long do I have to wait for it. As DWP needs to see it.

    Different GPS deal with Fit Notes differently. You need to speak to your GP..
    Information I post is for England unless otherwise stated. Rules may be different in other parts of UK.

    I always used to request the fit note a couple of days before the existing one ran out.
    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.

    I always had mine returned but each job centre will have their own process an idea would be to copy them first and send the copy if they will accept a copy if not send original and you keep copy
