Click on Fit Notes 
If you blinked, you missed this............I almost did!!!! Please ensure your Managers are aware, you can be sure your employees will know. 
Employees can now self-certify sickness for up to 28 days (previously 7 days). They only need to attend a GP for a ‘fit note’ if they have been ill for more than 28 days and have taken sick leave. This includes non-working days, such as weekends and bank holidays. 
To see more, in what is probably one of the shortest statutory instruments ever made, it’s in The Statutory Sick Pay (Medical Evidence) Regulations 2021. https://www.legislation.gov.uk/uksi/2021/1453/pdfs/uksi_20211453_en.pdf
