Customer Question

I’ve been suffering severe mental stress (work related), and my 16 year old son is now telling me I have to get advice. I work night shift and I have barely seen my children for the last 6 months. I need a break, from work so I can have time with my kids, and time to myself. I’m not eating properly and many years ago I suffered from depression, and I don’t want to go down that path again. How do I go about getting a Fit Note? I’m not registered to a GP as I moved back to the UK earlier this year and haven’t got round to it, but I need this sorted urgently.
Assistant: How long have you been feeling this way? Have you reached out to anyone about this yet?
Customer: Just family and friends. 3 weeks.
Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the Doctor should know?
Customer: Just Depression many years ago. And now work related stress.
