Online Medical Certificate

Why should I get my medical certificate online?

Getting an online medical certificate may be a new experience for many people- but rest assured it’s simple, quick and can save time and money.  It’s easy to register, book an online consultation with one of our experienced online doctors the same day, and receive the documentation immediately, all without leaving home. When you have a minor illness such as a cold or gastroenteritis, the last place you want to be is in a busy waiting room full of other unwell people. And if you’ve taken a day off work, it makes sense to use that sick leave wisely- recovering not queuing. The following articles explain a little more about how and why Qoctor was started. We also explore some of the concerns people may have about consulting an online doctor for the first time, the types of health problems that are appropriate, and the many benefits of using an online GP service.
