Hi all. Looking for help with fit note dates please. I’m currently waiting for my work assessment, and my first fit note is about to run out on the 3rd of Nov. I rang the drs today and the receptionist said they will only do a new one if I ring on the 4th of Nov but my dr isn’t there that day. My dr has already said in our last app she is happy to extend and that I just needed to call a few days before and she’d get it ready for me. But the receptionist wouldn’t even pass this msg on. I’m really concerned I will end up with a gap and lose money because of this. Should my I be able to request a couple of days ahead that my dr have this ready for me?? Or does it sound right that I can’t do anything other than wait til the 4th when she’s not even there?! Very anxious any advice appreciated thank you
