Online medical certificates – quick, easy and convenient.

Online medical certificates – quick and convenient

Quick and convenient, online medical certificates are available for Australians who need to provide evidence of illness for their employer following an absence from the workplace. 

Of course, you can get one of these from your local GP, but chances are, if you are sick, you really should be at home in bed.  With our online service you will be assessed, then receive your medical certificate by email.  That means you can rest up, and get better faster.

Here’s a list of reasons why you should give SwiftDoc a go next time you need a medical certificate:

Stay at home

If you’re too sick to go to work, then the best place for you is bed.  For yourself, that means you can stay warm, get lots of rest and relax, but still sort out getting an online medical certificate.  For others, that means they won’t contract your illness via their exposure to you.

Arranging your medical certificate online means you can stay at home and get better.

Save time and money

Without the need to leave home, you can save time on travel, and money on things such as parking or public transport.  Simply stay in bed (or on the couch), book an appointment on your favourite device and wait for us to call you back at your chosen time for a video consult.  No driving, no parking, no fuss.

Paying for Parking

No parking, no public transport, no sitting in traffic.

Electronic delivery

Once we’ve assessed your health, we’ll issue you a medical certificate via email. That way, you can forward it straight on to your boss, and get back to getting better. 

Emailing Medical Certificate

Convenient delivery of your medical certificate via email, so you can forward it straight to your boss.

Get the doctor consult too!

Obviously in order to issue you with a medical certificate, we’ll need to assess you first.  So as part of your consultation you’ll be able to receive our professional medical advice, we can issue you with a script if necessary, or refer you on to a specialist if you need further assessment.  The aim is to get you fit and healthy and back to work as soon as possible.

Online doctor consultation

Online doctor consultations are not only convenient, but will help you get better.

The same…only different

The process we follow to issue a medical certificate is exactly the same as if you received one in person.  It is a valid document, and must contain our details, your details, the date of examination, the date of issue of the certificate, and also the date(s) we’ve determined you are unfit for work.  Due to patient confidentiality, we don’t list details of your diagnosis on the certificate (unless you give us express consent).

We’re open seven days a week – and that includes evenings and public holidays.  So there is an excellent chance that when you are available for an appointment, we will be too.

So why not give it a try?
