Medical Certification / Sick Notes / Reports
Patients requiring a sick note for work must attend the surgery in person and be seen by the Doctor who can then certify them, the exception to this is when patients have been an inpatient in Hospital and we have recieved a letter from the Hospital. If you need a continuance of a sick note, please contact reception and they will put the request through to the Doctor for Social Welfare Certificates. We will need your PPS number and dates of sick leave. Patients need to be absent from work for 3 days before they receive a Social Welfare Certificate. Please contact reception 24 hours before your social welfare certificate is due and they need to be collected from reception in person.
Reports requested and paid directly by insurance companies and/or solicitors, are dealt with within 48hrs of the information being requested.
Letters requested by patients are charged at €20 +
Reports requested by patients are charged from €40 + depending on contents and complexity of reply
