Sexual Health

Sexual health is a very important aspect of everyone's health. It is therefore important you don't let your nerves hold you back from asking for help or advice.

There are a range of services provided by the NHS so that you can keep on top of your health.

For information on these please follow the link -> Sexual Health Oxfordshire 

Self-Certification - Sick Note

If this is your first sick note for this illness and you have been suffering with it for 7 days or less then you don't need to see a doctor.

  • You can complete a self certification form yourself
  • Some employers do require a doctor's sick note regardless
  • Many employers however have their own self-certification forms, but if they don't you can print and fill out the form below.
