What Is A Medical Certificate?
A medical certificate is a certified document that can be provided by a suitably qualified health professional or medical practitioner, such as a general practitioner in your local doctor’s office, your dentist or your local pharmacist.
Why Do I Need A Medical Certificate?
In order to satisfy the requirements of many work places the law states that to be eligible for compensation for time missed at work due to illness your employer may ask to see a medical certificate provided by a licensed medical professional. Typically, most people think they need to visit their doctor to obtain one, however medical certificates can also be issued by your local chemist.
