UP TO 5 DAYS: we can generate a medical certificate for up to 5 days, anything longer will need a in-person visit for your safety.

- Yes! We provide a signed medical certificate with all legal requirements met either in PDF format to your email or you can collect a paper copy from our clinic
- After speaking to our clinician, if appropriate a medical certificate date range can be backdated to the beginning of your current illness. The medical certificate can only be issued for a maximum of 5 days. The consultation date displayed on the medical certificate will be the date which you spoke to our clinician and this cannot be back-dated.
- If you are unwell and off work for longer than 5 days, you will need to be assessed by a doctor as there may be treatments or investigations required. You can either get a medical certificate for up to 5 days and then see how you feel OR book directly with our doctors instead.
- No, we are not able to offer these services through the online request. Please book an in-person, video or phone consultation

- If you submit your request Monday – Friday, you will receive a phone call within 24 hours and your medical certificate will be completed immediately after the phone call. This can then be either emailed directly to you or collected from our clinic.
