Can you help me get a medical note to take paid time off after my breast reduction surgery?
Your best option to get a medical note for breast reduction surgery is to go directly to your GP after you have booked your surgery.
Most GPs will be more than happy to give you the proper documentation so you can take medical leave while you recover.
Your GP can also provide further medical leave notes for you if you do not feel confident you are able to return to work when your original note ends.
You may also tell your surgeon that you require a medical note during your consultation.
Keep in mind that writing medical leave notes is up to the surgeon’s discretion, so always ask directly to avoid disappointment or stress later.
