We have an easy, no-fuss refund policy (see Privacy & Terms).

See how to organise a consultation by reviewing "How to get a Medical Certificate?" here.

Can I get a Medical Certificate for university or school?

Yes, our Medical Certificates can also be used for your university or school.

When completing the intake form, you may choose to have "university" or "school" written on the certificate instead of "work".

If you need a letter of support or help in completing special consideration forms, you will need to book a Priority Consult.

What is a Carer's Certificate?

A Carer's Certificate, also known as a "Carer's leave certificate", certifies that you are unable to work because you are caring for someone who is unwell.

The certificate will include the name of the person being cared for and their relationship to you. You will be asked to provide these details in the intake form as well as details about their medical condition.

See how to get a Carer's Certificate here.

What is a Backdated Medical Certificate?

A Backdated Medical Certificate certifies that you were unfit for work prior to the date that you were seen or assessed. It is issued after careful consideration of your circumstances.

This is not to be confused with the issue date of the certificate, which is the date on which the certificate is written. This date cannot be backdated or forward dated.

You are eligible if:

  • you had a minor short-term illness from which you have already recovered
  • the duration of your illness did not exceed 7 consecutive days
  • there are no concerns raised by Dr Jimmy
