If you are suffering from a headache that prevents you from attending work, you might need to get a GP to see you and provide a medical certificate for a headache. Getting a quick appointment at your usual GP might not be possible – and that is where Instant Consult can help.

As a supplement to the traditional health care system, a video consultation with an Instant Consult doctor can help you if you need help quickly – after setting up an account with us, all you need to do is press the Request a Consult button, and we will connect you to the next available doctor – within 15 minutes.
Instant Consult is an affordable and effective method of getting the medical help and advice you need, without having to leave your house. Read More
Do You Need a Medical Certificate for a Headache? Speak to a GP at Instant Consult
If your workplace or university needs you to provide proof of illness for personal leave, then contacting Instant Consult can help. If you a medical certificate for a headache, cold and flu, or any other illness, then a consultation with one of our doctors can result in the documentation that you need – if it is clinically appropriate.

When you need to speak to a doctor, we will connect you with the next available GP. There is an automatic timer, and this starts when you are connected.
After the consultation is completed, your nominated card will be automatically charged according to the length of time your consultation takes – please check our pricing page for more info. If the doctor thinks that a medical certificate is clinically appropriate, it will be in your Instant Consult inbox immediately following the consult. You can then save to your device or forward to your email, ready to send to the relevant person. It will remain in your inbox until you delete it.
Please note that our doctors will not backdate your medical certificate, and they rarely cover more than 3 days.
If you need a ‘Fit for Work’, Centrelink or a gym cancellation certificate then you will need to present to a GP in person for a physical examination, and Instant Consult would not be appropriate.
