When a group has enabled electronic medical certificates (eMCs) doctors can issue these from a consultation episode. 

  1. Navigate to the Consults tab of the app
  2. Open the consultation episode with the patient
  3. Select the conversation details icon 
  4. Select Issue Medical Certificate (if the option is not available, it is not enabled for this MyDoc group)
  5. Enter the duration of medical leave to be issued
  6. Enter the reason (this is not visible on the MC PDF producd
  7. Click Issue

The eMC will then be shared into the consultation episode with the patient.


  • It is only possible to issue Medical Certificates for outpatient medical leave on MyDoc.
  • The PDF MC generated will contain your MCR number, name and place of practice.
  • No signature is required as the eMC is electronically signed.
