Have you ever wondered why you can’t just call your local GP and get a sick note over the phone? It’s the 2020’s after all, communications technology is more reliable and ubiquitous than it has ever been – so why has the process of seeing the doctor remained largely unchanged over the decades?
Unfortunately, the medical profession has a lot of grandfathered systems in place that can be hard for older doctors to adjust to, as they know what works for them and don’t like to alter things. Also, many older people (who arguably have a greater need to see doctors more often), don’t fully trust or know how to reliably use technology that would make the process more convenient and effective.
Luckily, at Instant Consult we have led the charge in Australian telehealth services that give you the means to get a medical certificate online in Sydney or anywhere else in the country by simply using your smartphone device.
How does it work?
At Instant Consult, we have worked hard to make the most intuitive and convenient telehealth service we can. We know how slow and frustrating the typical procedure for seeing a doctor is, and that’s why we’ve made it easy to get a medical certificate online in Sydney. You can also use Instant Consult to secure other related doctoral services such as requesting a pathology test, or getting a request for diagnostic imaging, such as an x-ray.
Step 1: Download the Instant Consult app from the app store on your device.
Step 2: Register your basic information.
Step 3: Book a video conference consultation and get your medical certificate online^ in Sydney or any other Australian city (especially in rural areas where physically travelling to a doctor’s surgery might be more difficult).
It’s that easy! In less than 10 minutes you can download the app and speak to a fully licensed doctor via video call and get your medical certificate online^ in Sydney, or wherever else in Australia you are.
What are the benefits?
Here are some of the key benefits of getting a medical certificate online in Sydney rather than going with the traditional method.
Instant Video Calls
Your platform to access fully qualified Doctors for an online health consultation…instantly
Stay in bed!
When you use our app to get a medical certificate online in Sydney, it means you don’t need to even get out of bed when you wake up feeling ill. You can simply reach over to your smartphone and request a consult using the Instant Consult app. Unless your illness requires a physical examination, the doctor can diagnose you based on the symptoms you describe and from what they can see via the live video call with you.
Avoid the waiting room!
Can you think of anyone who enjoys a doctor’s waiting room? Apart from waiting around with other sick people (who might make you sicker), you often have to endure unruly children in an uncomfortable clinical atmosphere. When you choose to use Instant Consult to get a medical certificate online in Sydney, you can say goodbye to reading old magazines and being stuck waiting for the doctor to eventually see you (as they very rarely see you at the exact time you booked and often make you wait).
How many times have you heard a clinical receptionist tell you “there’s X number of people in front of you” when you arrived on time? In the time it takes to go through all of that, you could have already gotten a medical certificate online^ in Sydney by using Instant Consult.
When you use Instant Consult to get an online doctors’ note in Sydney, it means you won’t have to leave your home and can simply crawl back into bed (if you even left it) when you’re feeling too ill for work or school. If you’re feeling too ill to travel and meet your routine commitments (school, work), then it’s not fair to ask you to make the journey to a doctors’ surgery just to satisfy the bureaucratic demand for a sick note. It doesn’t seem logical to have to leave the house for doctor’s note when the whole point you need one is because you feel too ill carry on with a regular day.
As one of the industry leaders in Australian telehealth services, we have strived to create an easy-to-use system that connects you with real doctors in the most convenient way possible. We believe that it should be easy to get a medical certificate online in Sydney or anywhere else in Australia, especially rural communities where driving to the doctor’s surgery is more of an ask.
