Social Security (Medical Evidence) and Statutory Sick Pay (Medical Evidence) Amendment Regulations 2010 come into force

Implementation date: 6 April 2010

The Regulations change the format of the medical statement and the rules associated with its completion. Doctors will be able to indicate whether their patient is unfit for work or may be able to work with appropriate support if available. The Regulations reduce the number of different medical statements available for doctors to issue. The Regulations can be viewed on the OPSI website.
