Need A Online Medical Certificate for Sick Leave?

Single-Day Medical Certificate For Work

Not feeling well and need a day off from work or school? Ask your doctor for a single-day certificate to prove to your employer/university that you have legitimate health reasons for missing work.

Single-Day Medical Certificate For School/Uni

Feeling under the weather and require a brief absence from school or university? Request a medical certificate for school/uni from our online GP to validate your legitimate health reasons for missing class.

Carer’s Leave Certificate

If you need to take time off work to take care of an immediate family member or household member, you will need a Carer’s leave certificate. The requirements are similar to that of a doctor’s certificate in that the dependent that is sick must still be consulted, and can cover a maximum of 3 days.

Multiple-Day Certificate

If you need more time to recover from your illness, you can also ask our doctors for a multi-day certificate. Note, however, that this will only cover a maximum of 3 days from the date of consultation.

**Please note, we cannot backdate certificates.

Get Genuine Sick Leave Certificates From Real Doctors

Telehealth services have made obtaining online certificates easy and convenient. However, the authenticity and credibility of such certificates are essential. At Instant Consult, we prioritise your health and trust.

All consultations with Instant Consult are with experienced Australian-registered doctors who practice to the standards developed by the RACGP and the ACRRM for medical services. This ensures that when you receive a medical certificate from us, it’s backed by the expertise and credibility of real, qualified doctors.

Frequently Asked Questions

The rules for medical certificates remain the same, whether you obtain them online or through traditional methods. To be valid, a doctor’s certificate must have been issued by a medical practitioner who is registered with the Medical Board of Australia. This can be checked very easily by looking up the practitioner’s name or medical registration number on the board’s website. If the practitioner isn’t there, then the certificate is not legal.

Online Medical Certificate Guidelines

An online consultation must provide a proper assessment and accurate records, just like a face-to-face consultation. Any resulting example medical certificate has to be addressed directly to the employer, must be able to be read and understood by a non-medical person and include the following information:

  • Patient’s name
  • The name and provider number of the doctor who issued the certificate
  • Dates of examination, certificate issuance, and when the patient became unfit for work

As long as the online certificate adheres to these guidelines, it will be legal and should be accepted by the employer. However, each employer might have specific policies regarding sick leave. So you should consult your employment contract or HR department for details pertinent to your situation.

If you require a Mask Exemption, ‘Fit for Work’ Certificate, ‘Fit to Fly’ Certificate, Childcare/’Back to School’ Clearance, Centrelink Certificate, University Form completed, Work Cover or Gym Cancellation Certificate, a certificate for missing police station attendances, parole or court appearances, 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.

No, as with regular face-to-face consultations, our doctors cannot backdate medical certificates. This is because there is no way the doctor can determine if you were too ill to attend work or school in the past, only in your present state.

Yes, our medical certificates are issued and certified by real Australian-registered doctors. It’s as legitimate as the medical certificate you can get from a face-to-face consultation.

No single vaccination schedule suits all travellers, and each schedule must be personalized by a physician according to the traveller’s previous vaccinations, health status and risk factors, the countries to be visited, the type and duration of travel, types of activities and the time available before departure. A medical consultation before departure is a good opportunity for a health care provider to review routine vaccinations and provide any vaccines that have been missed, in addition to providing the vaccinations indicated for the specific itinerary.
