Confirmation of illness

If you are unwell during any period of assessment, including examinations, you must request a confirmation of illness form as quickly as possible from the University Health Centre

Please note: the Health Centre will provide you with confirmation of illness even if you are not a patient with them; they do this under a specific arrangement with the University.


You need three copies of the form. Practitioners at the Health Centre have duplicate pads of these forms, which create a full set of copies.

If you have to go to a Doctor who is not at the Health Centre, print a Confirmation of Illness Form (PDF , 292kb) and take it with you. You will need to make copies for submission.
