The article discusses the conflicting reactions of human resources (HR) professionals and doctors to the revised FMed3 certificate in Great Britain. The new well note allows doctors to say whether patients are fit for work, or fit for some work, and also allows general practitioners (GP) to suggest changes to work or hours of labor. Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development (CIPD) members were asked to assess the usefulness of the back-to-work advice provided by GP trialling the form.
