At present we do not hold any data relating to fit notes so are unable to provide the information requested. We are working with NHS Digital towards making anonymised fit note statistics available. These statistics will include information on the main diagnosed condition (ICD-10) and the location of the Clinical Commissioning Group which will allow the number of fit notes issued for both England and Leeds to be identified.
