WorkCover NSW – certificate of capacity

From 1 October 2012 the WorkCover certificate of capacity replaces the WorkCover medical certificate as the primary tool for the nominated treating doctor to communicate with all parties involved in the return to work process.


The nominated treating doctor or treating specialist medical practitioner were provided with a letter advising them of a six month period to make adjustment and then only the new certificates will be accepted.

Our clients are still receiving the old certificates.
