Social Security (Medical Evidence) and Statutory Sick Pay (Medical Evidence) (Amendment) Regulations (Northern Ireland) 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. The medical statement enables doctors to indicate what an individual can do, so that employers can consider whether or not the doctor's advice could be facilitated in the workplace to help an individual to return to work earlier. The Regulations make corresponding provision to Regulations made in Great Britain. The Regulations can be viewed on the OPSI website.
