My CMW signed me off by phoning the dr for me and getting them to draw up the sick note - all I had to do was collect it.

Thanks mummy and daisy <waves to daisy>

Seen my cmw - no GP appointments until Monday (not even emergency!) and she can't sign me off but is happy to recommend GP does and has arranged for me to pick up sick note up tomorrow.
