Panic at the doctor - I need a sick note (L4) from my work in Poland

Hi everyone

I am stuck in a bit of a pickle.

At the end of October, I fell very ill. I had an African doctor come to my house to see me and I took sick leave from work assuming that she would be able to provide me with a legitimate sicknote for work. However she later told me that she can give me a prescription but she cannot officially give me a sick note for work because She practices officially in Rwanda. Now this has been about a month ago or so. Unfortunately all the Polish doctors tell me that I cannot take sick leave for more than three days back. And this has been a month!.

Is there a Doctor Who can provide me with a sick leave for work for end of October? L4 to be more specific!

This is true. Why on earth have you been waiting for a month without having a sick leave.

Only a psychiatrist can do that in Poland. They can do that with the delay of six months even!

Why on earth has he been getting some unregistered African doctor to treat him is also my question...

Without meaning to sound cruel I think it might be better just to give up those few days pay them to go to your work with a note from the psychiatrist (Because you don't actually have a psychiatric condition!)

I thought the doctor was a woman. Where did your friend find 'him'?

Ziemowit's reference to a psychiatrist means that if you had a mental illness, you could get your sickpay backdated, not that a psychiatrist will give you a sick note :))

Doc was a female. Well I'll speak to my manager and I'm sure she will understand

I wouldn't be so sure. If you don't have a sick note, usually the only way to get paid is to take the days off your holiday entitlement.
