A member of staff has given in a sick note and I have a feeling that it may no be legit. A couple of things do not seem quite right. There is not a date ( when the actual cert was written), hospital bar code missing ( others I have seen have that at the bottom) and couple of other little things.
Do any wise people know how I could check the validity? I am sure the hospital will not give any patient info and I cannot read the doctors signature?
I'm in hospital for 2 sometimes 3 appointments a week at the moment, all I've got to show my manager are the screenshots of the texts I get confirming them. This isn't very helpful for you but I think it's really variable between wards/clinics.
The ones I have had from crisis team and hospital were all hand written. Department was on them, and the name of the person who issued them. They look really different to the printed gp ones. Some are double page A4 size, others are single page A5.
