Customer: replied 4 years ago.

I didn't send a sick note on the guide to jury summons I was sent it said do not send medical certificate till asked to it also said once the form to the jury summons has been processed if you are expected to serve as summond you will be sent a confirmation letter and pack which will contain imformation you need for your first dayof jury service which I haven't recived

Thank you.

The short answer is that you are on a summons. That will mean that if you don't attend any commit potentially an offence and actually courts are becoming way more aggressive than they used to about things like that.

If you haven't heard that you are excused then you should behave as though you are not. It doesn't mean necessarily that you won't be excused but you shouldn't presume that you are.

If you do have a medical certificate then you should take it with you on Monday. Also, if you have proof that you sent the application being then you should take that with you in the hope that the judge will release you.

Can I clarify anything for you?
