Yes, a doctor can issue you with a Medical Certificate when clinically appropriate. These Medical Certificates are predominately used for workplace or university personal leave. The certificate will be available in your Instant Consult Inbox immediately following your consultation, which can be saved to your device or forwarded to an email address, which is where you can forward this onto relevant personnel (place of work, school etc.). The Medical Certificate will remain in your Instant Consult Inbox until you choose to delete it.
Doctors do not backdate Medical Certificates and will rarely issue a Medical Certificate covering more than 3 days. The details issued on the Medical Certificate is up to the doctor and what they deem suitable during consultation.
If you require a ‘Fit for Work’ Certificate, Centrelink Certificate, University Form completed, Work Cover, Gym Cancellation Certificate or any external forms completed – you will need to present to a GP in-person to undergo a physical examination and will not be able to use the Instant Consult service for these types of medical documents.
