I was given a sick note from the Drs last week,as I had been unable to work after a nasty stomach bug.Howver,I can't find it now.It was in my purse & dd2 has had everything out & has probably hidden it somewhere.I have turned the house upside down,but with no luck.

I really can't afford to loose this money,as I am self employed & don't get Statutory sick pay.Would the Dr issue a duplicate?If not,what do I do?

i'm sure they'd issue a duplicate for you but they might charge you. Hopefully not, but they might.

They will issue a duplicat, I have done this. I wrote a letter to the surgery and explained what had happened with dates etc and the Dr did it for me that day, it did have duplicate written on it.

I'm confused Mirage. If you are self-employed, then how will a sick note help you to get money?

Oh thank you both so much.That is such a relief to hear.I've had a horrible week & losing the sicknote was the last straw.

As I pay NI contributions I can claim Incapacity benefit.It is less than the equivalent of a days wages for the whole week,but better than nothing.

Ah - I never realised that (both dh and I are/were self-employed). Glad to hear that you should be able to get a replacement then.

Thanks UCM.I went in today & left a note at reception for the Dr.They said to ring on Wednesday to see what the position was.I'm hopeful as they are an excellent practice & I'm not in there every 5 minutes pestering them.
