A member of staff must notify the Chair/Head of Department of his/her absence as soon as possible on the first full day of absence, either by telephone, in writing, or by a message through someone acting on his/her behalf. The Chair/Head of Department must be informed of the reason for the absence, and kept informed of the progress of the illness and the likely date of return to work. If the absence lasts for four or more consecutive working days, the member of staff must complete a University Self-Certificate Form (not the DHSS Self Certificate Form) on his/her return to work. These are available from the Staff Office. If the absence is for a period of more than seven days in a row, including Saturday and Sunday, the member of staff must obtain a Doctor's Certificate which should be forwarded to the Staff Office (via the member of staff's Department, if that is the normal procedure) without delay.
