Workcover and TAC

Workcover Consultations in Cranbourne North and Croydon

If you or one of your employees has suffered a work related injury, you will need an experienced and thorough GP to assess the patient and produce a WorkCover certificate of capacity. Additionally, the patient may need ongoing injury management. In our experience, both patients and businesses are more satisfied and benefitted if the patient can return to work in some capacity sooner rather than later.

A WorkCover certificate of capacity outlines the duties that the injured party can or cannot perform at work, as well as anything that can aid in the recovery. This certificate is also required to communicate the WorkCover case with the workers insurer, employer, and other health professionals involved.

The doctors who consult at HealthMint are able to assist if your injury has had an effect on your emotional wellbeing. In addition, we have a treatment room where we are able to carry out casting and splinting of fractured limbs.
