Certified Sick Notes
If you're in need of a fit note (sick note), our GPs are trained to provide you with a certified record of your illness. Depending on the regulations of your workplace, we can provide you with a sick note on day 7 or earlier of your leave.
A fit note is often required by an employer as proof of an illness that hinders an employee's ability to work. This note is proof from a GP that an individual is not well enough, or may be well enough to continue their tasks.
Our NHS-trained doctors can provide you with referrals for external treatments with specialised medical practitioners.
A referral may be provided if your concern requires specialised support. You and your GP can work together to determine if your concern can be treated without the need for a specialist.
They will evaluate if it is clinically necessary in your case to be referred to a specialist in a particular field.
Online healthcare comes with a range of benefits. You are able to not only choose a time and place for your appointment but you can also have any necessary blood tests, prescriptions or products sent right to your door immediately after your session.

Can I get a prescription from a Welzo online consultation?
Our NHS-trained doctors can recommend a suitable medication for you, which can be ordered from our Welzo online pharmacy immediately after your consultation.
The Welzo online pharmacy requires a short online consultation that will determine if you are suitable for a specific medication before you are able to purchase it. These consultations have been crafted by doctors and are able to decide based on your personal information, medical history and current concerns if you are eligible for a prescription.
Can I get a sick note from Welzo?
Yes, we can provide a sick note to those whose employers require a doctor's note to be eligible for sick leave.
You may be asked about the time you have already taken off due to sickness. This is because the government requires that you give your employer a fit/sick note if you have been ill for longer than 7 days in a row and have taken sick leave. This includes non-working days, such as weekends and bank holidays.

A Welzo GP appointment is £49. This price includes any prescriptions, referrals or sick notes that may need to be written during your consultation.

How is an online consultation different from an in-person appointment?
Unlike in-person appointments, our service allows you to choose a time that works for you. This means you won't be held up in waiting rooms or need to relocate to your doctor's rooms.
An online appointment is ideal if you believe that you may be contagious as you won't need to leave your space to be seen to be a doctor. We recommend that in cases of infection, you schedule an online appointment instead of an in-person appointment as this will keep both you and others safe.
