Changes to workers compensation

27 Jun 2013

The WorkCover Authority of NSW has announced key changes that may affect your clinical work with clients claiming workers compensation. The client’s nominated treating doctor will now be required to complete a WorkCover NSW certificate of capacity. The doctor may ask you to provide important information to consider when completing the certificate of capacity, for example how the injured worker’s recovery is progressing and what they can do to further assist their recovery at work and at home.

For more information visit the WorkCover Authority of NSW website or phone 131050.
