From April this year if you are sick and need to see a doctor they may well hand you one of the brand new fit notes to give to your employer. Re-branding them won't make a difference. Most people will still call them sicknotes.
According to Direct.gov your GP can add some advice for your employer on how simple changes to the job you do may allow you to return to work earlier.Unless every GP becomes expert in every possible set of working conditions and every possible illness and their affect on each other then the advice is meaningless.
