Sickness certificates will be issued ONLY if the patient has seen the doctor. No back dated certificates will be issued. Please speak to your doctor if you have any concerns.
Similarly, if the parent needs off work note because the child is not well, parent / guardian will need to attend the doctor and proper documentation needs to be completed. Please be aware that all these sickness certificates are "medico-legal" documents. Hence we are compelled to follow the proper protocol as laid out by the Australian Medical Association and other relevant authorities.
