If you need to get a sick leave certificate to take personal leave from work, making a doctor’s appointment can be a lengthy process – and getting to it might not be easy, depending on your symptoms. Instant Consult have created a platform where you can get access to fully qualified GPs who can consult with you via video link – and if it is clinically appropriate, they can provide a doctor certificate for sick leave that you can share with HR.

Getting a Sick Leave Certificate Without Leaving Your House

Using Instant Consult, there is no need to book an appointment – our simple to use system connects you to the next available GP – with a wait time of under 15 minutes. We provide this service between the hours of 6am and midnight, 7 days a week, 365 days a year – so no matter when you need us, we are available.

All our GPs are not only fully qualified; they are also fellows of RACGP and ACCRM – the highest qualifications a GP can obtain – and you can access them from wherever you are in Australia – as long as you have internet access.

The Process For Obtaining a Sick Leave Certificate

To use our service – whether to get medical advice or a referral, to get a repeat prescription or for a certificate for sick leave, all you need to do is register with us.

Our platform is available through Google Chrome browser on any Windows PC, MacOS, or Android Tablet. A simple interface allows you to use your computer speakers, microphone, webcam or similar to complete the video consultation.

We also have an app, available in the Australian App Store and Google Play Store. The app is the only way to connect to our service via your Smartphone – it is easy to install and intuitive to use.

A few short questions, including information about Medicare and billing, and then you are ready to consult with one of our doctors.

During your consultation, the doctor will discuss your symptoms and offer their advice – this might include a prescription, a referral, a medical certificate, or advice – whatever the GP deems is clinically appropriate. The consultation is automatically timed and billed, and the charges depend on how long the consultation takes; with prices starting at $35, and Medicare bulk-billing available for eligible patients, you will find that it is competitively priced medical care.

After the consultation, your nominated debit or credit card will be charged. If it is clinically appropriate and a medical certificate is necessary, this will be available in your Instant Consult inbox – it can be downloaded and saved to your device or forwarded to your email address.

Instant Consult GPs do not backdate a sick leave certificate, and they will usually only provide them to cover up to 3 days.

If you are looking for other kinds of medical certificate – like ‘Fit for Work’ or a Gym Cancellation Certificate, you will need to make an appointment with your regular GP as these need a physical examination.

Quick & Easy Sick Leave Certificates in Australia

When getting access to fully qualified doctors on your schedule is difficult, the Instant Consult platform allows you to access an online doctor and documentation wherever you are in Australia. With no appointment booking, you don’t have to wait to get your consultation – no matter what time of day. Instant Consult means that you can request a consultation instantly and be in contact with a GP within 15 minutes – no matter when you connect.
