WorkCover & TAC
Eastlink Family Medical is pleased to help you or one of your employees get back to work following a work-related injury. An experienced GP is able to assist you by examining the patient’s injury and recovery and producing a Workcover Certificate of Capacity. This determines the worker’s capacity for work and the duties that they can and cannot perform at work following the injury. This also provides employers with information they require to safely plan the worker’s return to work.
We understand the a transport accident can be a major impact to your wellbeing, including your physical and mental health. Our team at Eastlink Family Medical can help you with your recovery from an accident by giving advice and planning medical treatment to assist with your overall recovery, rehabilitation and return to work.
This process may include:
- Referrals to other appropriate healthcare services – including physiotherapy and podiatry offered at our clinic
- Assessing overall capacity of work
- Reviewing progress and future goals

We are able to assist you with both a Workcover Certificate of Capacity, as well as a TAC claim, to ensure you get the help you need following a work-related incident and the appropriate steps required to return to work.
