E-Certification for Social Welfare Department

E-Certification for Social Welfare Department

Before E-certification takes place you must make an appointment with your Gp for assessment and discussion.

E-certification involves medical certificates for Illness Benefit and Occupational Injury Benefit being sent electronically from GP software systems via Healthlink to the Department of Social Welfare.

Using E-certification, the GP creates the e-certificate via its practice management system and submits the E-certificate to DEASP via its computer software. Consent is required from the patient to permit this.  

This service is available for both MED1 and MED2 certificates.

As the patient you still need to complete and post your IB1 (available from surgery) form.
