You have the same doctor patient confidentiality as any bricks and mortar medical practice.

No details will be ever passed on to your employer. It is between you and your Doctor only!

During the video consultation you will be asked to give us your consent to discuss your medical certificate with your employer (in the unlikely event they would like to verify its authenticity). 

This consent allows us to confirm the authenticity of the certificate and dates for when the certificate was provided.

We cannot and will never discuss and medical information with your employer.

If your employer has questions regarding the nature of the illness or diagnosis on the medical certificate they should contact you in the first instance. WebDoctor will comply with guidelines from the Data Protection Commissioner about what information can be disclosed on a medical certificate. (See link here Case Study 11). As a result, we will never share specific medical information with a third party without your consent.
