Qualicare doctors face deluge of requests for “Return to work” certificates (see enclosed)

The Qualicare team have spent many hours compiling a DOH compliant set of documents for doctors and their patients to facilitate ease of return to work.

We advise you to use the 4 page Qualicare form to be found inside this edition, and which was sent only to our members and shareholders on mass email, to avoid difficulties with patient expectations as well as with HR departments in various areas.

It is unwise to agree to complete a wide variety of differing return to work forms, each devised by an individual workplace and will demand more of your time and concentration, due to lack of uniformity.

Get used to using the Qualicare enclosed 4 page form.

Our form initially appears at first glance to be long and complex, because there are pages for you to record your worker/patient’s history, for you and the patient/worker to witness and sign, and a place for the doctor to report a limited examination outcome as well as an application for concession to the employer, by the patient for possible comorbidities. The final page is for the doctor to confirm that the patient’s / worker’s comorbidities are indeed accurate.

We have included everything that has been recommended by the DOH, so don’t take short cuts, nor embellish the form with additional comments. It is NOT a routine sick certificate!!
