Requests for Work Certificates
Our Practice is working alongside the guidelines and stipulations of the Social Welfare Certification process with all Private (work) Certificate Requests from Patients.
As per Social Welfare Closed Certificate Guidelines for General Practitioners (January 2019), we certify our patients for the appropriate duration based on their illness/injury/type of employment etc.
With this in mind, and in order to provide clarity for re-certification we issue our Work Certification for the same duration of the Social Welfare Certificate. Exceptions will not and can not be made.
