Sick notes

0 have signed. Let’s get to 100!

I work in secondary care as an Advanced Clinical Practitioner, i am a nurse by background. 

Unfortunately, we cannot sign sick notes due to the law being it has to be a medical doctor. However, this massively delays discharges in secondary care. 

We have to ask a Dr to sign it on our behalf, even thought they may not know this patient well. 

This to me makes no sense why we as Advanced Practitioners, cannot sign a sick note when we can do much more advanced skills. 

Please help me improve patient flow and sign the petition to get ACP’s to be able to sign sick notes.
