your employer will have to do a risk assessment on you when you return to work which will probably involve other duties. I agree working in a warehouse with a broken thumb is not a good idea. Your doctor will probably give you a fit note stating what duties such as admin you are able to do.


if you have an occupational health service, make sure your employer does a referal

You can sign yourself off sick for a maximum of 7 days with a form from your doctors surgery.

After 7 days you will need a "Fit Note" from your Doctor - originally called a sick note!


Taken from the Gov.UK website here


Employees only need a fit note from a doctor after 7 days off work sick and have the right to use their statutory holiday entitlement during their sickness.


Fit notes and proof of sickness


Employees must give their employer a doctor’s ‘fit note’ (formerly ‘sick note’) if they’re off sick for more than 7 days. Hospital doctors or GPs provide them. They can charge a fee if one is asked for before the 7th day.

Employers can also ask employees to fill in a form when they return to work to confirm they’ve been off sick for up to 7 days. This is called ‘self-certification’. Employers usually provide their own version of this form.

Keep up the fight against Bank Charges.
