What We Can Provide
Our doctors, like any other GP service, issue medical certifications at their clinical discretion. We can not foresee or influence the clinical decisions of the doctors. They have complete clinical autonomy.
Please be advised, we cannot provide retrospective medical certificates. Medical certification can only be provided when a patient has been seen within 48 hours of the onset of symptoms or appropriate medical documentation is provided. E.g., discharge letter from hospital for recent admission
As we are an online video consultation service, we cannot issue certificates/ reports that require a physical examination, including but not limited to:
- Retrospective medical certificates
- Ergonomic assessments for workplace/home office equipment
- Driver’s license medical reports
- Fit for work certificates
- Fit for sports certificates (e.g. gym/marathons/sports)
- Historical illnesses (illnesses you are not currently suffering from)
If you are unsure whether your request can be addressed in an online GP video consultation, please email email@example.com and we will be happy to advise.
