TOPIC: ESA Medical Certificates

ESA Medical Certificates 2 weeks 2 days ago #174410

Hi Thanks Gordon for letting me know my name was showing and answering my query. I have another question. I am on ESA in the support group my GP currently gives me a medical certificate unfit note for 12months at a time and has done for the past few years but the last time she commented that she did not understand why I was still being asked to provide these. Can anyone help me with this

If you are in one of the ESA groups then you do not need to provide Fit Notes any more.
