How do I discuss with the nominated treating doctor the best timing to hand back the role of completing the Certificate of capacity/certificate of fitness?

The broadening of provisions enabling physiotherapists to certify are a temporary measure designed to relieve pressure on general practitioners during the COVID-19 pandemic. If the injured person is still requiring treatment and the issue of certificates towards the end of this 12 month period, the treating physiotherapist should then discuss with the nominated treating doctor when it is most appropriate to transfer the role of completing the Certificate of capacity/certificate of fitness back to them.
