medical certificate for sick leave

You will need an official statement stating your absence was legitimately due to sickness to make your sick/ carer leave valid. This Priceline medical certificate can be issued by either a pharmacist, for minor ailments, or a physician, for major ailments.

Available Service Time: Store hours

Price: $25.00   (Validity Period: 2 days)

We will only issue certificates in relation to the condition/s our pharmacist is qualified to asses.

According to the Fair Work of 2009, a pharmacist can issue certificates only for two valid reasons:

 

1. A minor illness/injury (based on the pharmacist’s level of expertise) for a Personal Leave.

2. A need to care for an ill family/household member for a Carer’s Leave.

 

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 a Medical Certificate for Sick/Carer Leave?
