Sicky has a team of experienced pharmacists ready to assess you or your dependent.
Under Australian law, pharmacists are qualified to provide healthcare advice, as well as certificates for medical or carer’s leave. This also applies to online services like Sicky.
If you believe you may have a serious medical condition or require immediate treatment, please do not use Sicky and instead dial 000.
This time varies on a case-by-case basis, however most Sicky users are assessed in around 10 minutes.
This varies on a case-by-case basis.
Our pharmacists will likely ask about your (or your unwell dependant’s) symptoms and medical history.
Your online video assessment doesn’t cost anything.
If you’re deemed unfit for work due to sickness or needing to care for a dependant, the certificate to show your employer or university will cost $19.95.
After being assessed as unfit for work or university, your pharmacists will write and issue a certificate.
This should be available within a few minutes after your assessment.
We might not have received payment for your certificate. Please ensure that your payment details are correct and up to date.
If your payment has been processed but the certificate still isn’t viewable, try restarting the Sicky app.
If the above doesn’t work and your certificate still isn’t accessible, please reach out to our support team at email@example.com.
Our pharmacists will only issue a certificate if they assess you as unfit for work.
It is against Australian law for a pharmacist to issue a certificate if they do not believe your symptoms make you unfit for work or university, or if they have reason to believe you are untruthful about your symptoms.
Additionally, Sicky can’t issue certificates for sick or carer’s leave relating to pregnancy, for compassionate leave, or if they believe that that your illness or injury may require further consultation with a doctor.
The Australian Fair Work Act 2009 gives pharmacists the right to assess symptoms and issue certificates as legitimate proof of absence from work or university.
This means that a certificate from Sicky is legitimate proof that you were unable to attend work or university.
However, some workplace agreements or awards can require certificates from a registered medical practitioner (such as a doctor) in certain circumstances. This is generally a rare occurrence. If you believe this may be applicable to you, please confirm this before purchasing a certificate from Sicky.
Our certificates can be used to show your employer or university that you were unfit for work.
Should you require a certificate for reasons such as extended sick leave, compassionate leave, family/maternity leave, health/welfare entitlements or insurance claims, a certificate from one of Sicky’s pharmacists may not be sufficient.
You should confirm with the required party that a certificate issued by a pharmacist will be suitable before using Sicky.
Very happy with the service. So glad I can get a medical certificate without having to wait for an hour for a doctor and being surrounded by other sick people. Thank you, thank you, thank you for this essential service!
The perfect alternative to going to the GPs for a medical certificate. Sicky lets us stay home rather than going out and risk exposure to people at the GPs office. Such a great idea and the app works seamlessly. Thank you for creating this!
Amazing idea!!! The app works perfectly. Saves me so much time waiting at the doctors. Ideal given the coronavirus epidemic.
Time saver! I was impressed with how well this worked. I didn’t have to spend time to get ready, head out, wait at the doctor's, then be seen to get a medical certificate. Sicky has helped me get this out of the way on my phone and in no time, all from bed! The pharmacist gave me great advice. Will definitely be using this again whenever I’m feeling unwell to work!
