Pre op isolation letters for employers

Practices in the city have been receiving requests from patients for sick notes or letters for their employers, when the patient has been notified that they (or a member of the household) need to self-isolate for 14 days prior to elective admission to hospital. A sick note cannot be issued unless a patient is ill. We do recognise that these requests are coming in and we therefore advise:

  • The admission letter from the hospital should be sufficient evidence for an employer.
  • However, if your employer is insistent, you can print off this pre op isolation letter and hand it to your employer.
