Statutory Sick Pay (SSP) is £88.45 a week for up to 28 weeks.

You need to qualify for SSP and have been off work sick for four or more days in a row (including non-working days). You can’t get less than the statutory amount.  You can get more if your company has a sick pay scheme (or ‘occupational scheme’)  so check your employment contract.
