The Board is consulting on Draft Guidance for Chiropractors – Issuing certificates of proof of sickness or injury
The Holidays Act has recently been amended to allow any registered health practitioner under the Health Practitioners Competence Assurance Act (2003) to provide a certificate for proof of sickness or injury in relation to employment.
As this is new for chiropractors, the Board has drafted Guidance on this topic. The intent of the Board’s draft Guidance is to assist chiropractors in complying with their legal and professional obligations, if they choose to issue certificates for this purpose. The Board welcomes submissions on the draft Guidance, including in particular:
1. Does the guidance document provide enough clarity for chiropractors on issuing a Certificate of proof of sickness or injury’?
2. If there is any additional information or guidance you would like the Board to consider including in this document, please provide details.
The consultation closes at 5pm on 7 May 2018. Submissions may be emailed to email@example.com
From time to time the Board seeks submissions on specific policies , these consultation documents will be made available here. Submissions are welcome from the general public, patients, chiropractors, other health professionals, stakeholders and any other interested party.
