What further advice should doctors include on a fit note where they tick the "may be fit for work taking account of the following advice" option?

If a doctor advises that an employee "may be fit for work taking account of the following advice", the doctor will be required to provide further information, including information on the functional effects of the employee's condition (see Getting the most out of the fit note: GP guidance). The doctor can indicate what adjustments could assist the employee to return to work by ticking one or more of four boxes, to suggest: a phased return, amended duties, altered hours and/or workplace adaptations. The doctor can also include further suggestions and information in the comments section, for example a recommendation that the employee is referred to occupational health for an assessment, or to record that the GP has already made a referral to the Fit for Work service.
