Doctors are frequently requested to provide information about their patients. These requests come from a variety of sources - eg, employers, government agencies and regulatory bodies. In Australia, GPs receive the most requests, as it is they who hold the most comprehensive records.
Information may need to be provided in the form of a report, a certificate, a statement or a letter. Most requests for information present no problem but occasional difficulties may arise. Such difficulties may include conflicts of interest, unreasonable expectations about the information the doctor may hold and problems about payment. Classifying the reports may help to clarify these issues.
At Bellambi Medical Centre our Doctors can help you with neccesary medical reporting.
