All the doctor’s at Norwest General Practice in Bella Vista have experience with WorkCover and occupational health issues. If you or your employee gets injured at work our doctors can assess, treat and issue WorkCover NSW-Certificates of Capacity.
For patients seeking treatment for WorkCover injuries, payment for the consultation is made on the day. Once we have confirmed insurance details of a valid claim, the practice is then able to invoice the insurance provider directly.
For any work related injury please ring reception to advise us of the injury before bringing the injured worker to the practice. Initial WorkCover consultations always require a longer consultation.
An appointment must be made with your nominated treating doctor in order for a WorkCover related medical certificate to be issued.
