Can I get a medical certificate from a SwiftMed Doctor?

If you have a minor illness and are unable to attend work or study, sometimes you need a medical certificate. This is difficult to get at short notice, or when you are feeling unwell. SwiftMed can provide online sick notes after being assessed online by one of our experienced New Zealand doctors, without you needing to leave home. Please note we cannot provide WINZ or ACC medical certificates.

Sometimes runners and athletes need a Doctor's Note in order to compete in organised races overseas such as 5k, 10k, half, full and ultra marathons. When people work full time or don't have a regular GP, it can be difficult to get an appointment with a local doctor. At SwiftMed we provide Medical Certificates for athletes around their schedule, so that they can compete in sporting events, even when it's last minute.

To get a Medical Certificate just make a quick online booking with one of our SwiftMed doctors for $49.95. The online doctor can speak to you, take a history, and make an assessment just as they would in clinic. We are open every day, including public holidays till 10pm at night. A same day appointment is always possible.

Some of the most common reasons for people to get an online medical certificate include:

  • Migraine
  • Sore throat
  • Gastro vomiting and diarrhoea bug
  • Viral illnesses
  • Back pain
  • Period pain

Immediately after the consult, you will receive an email with the PDF medical certificate. It contains all the appropriate information you’d expect such as relevant dates, full professional details of the doctor, and their signature. Or it can be posted to your employer or educational provider if you prefer. As SwiftMed has New Zealand registered doctors, our appointments are usually covered by medical insurance policies. Always check with your insurer just to make sure.
