We Do Medical Certificate Issuance Here in West Brunswick!What is there to do when you don’t show up for work due to illness? Worry not! Here at Priceline Pharmacy West Brunswick, we’ve got the right people to do medical certificate issuance for minor ailments. Read on to see how!
A thorough interview will be conducted prior to the issuance of the certificate and will only be given when, by the pharmacist’s professional opinion, it is clear that you are unfit for work or taking care of someone ill at home.
Who may benefit from Medical Certificate Issuance for Sick/Carer Leave?
If you are a “federal system” employee with an illness/injury or with a household member in need of immediate care, then you find this service useful.

Reasons We Can Issue Medical Certificate
According to the Fair Work of 2009, a pharmacist can issue certificates only for two valid reasons:
