Customer Question

My son has been off work this past 10 days on holidays. He's had a temperature and a bad cough. He's isolated this past 8 days and due back to work on Wednesday. He's a Carer. He has no local Gp as he went to college in Liverpool and never changed back to our local Gp. He still has symptoms. He's afraid to go back on Wednesday in case he passes it on to elderly people. Only problem is that because he can't get a sick note as he has no GP an unless he gets one and doesn't return to work he will be sacked
