HC Deb 08 July 1913 vol 55 cc233-4W
Captain JESSEL

asked the Secretary to the Treasury whether he would consider the advisability of making regulations for the purposes of the National Insurance Act that medical certificates of incapacity be given by the doctors on the first day of incapacity, and should not be ante-dated?


A model form of initial medical certificate will shortly be issued by the Commissioners, who realise the importance of so drafting it that the society will know whether the doctor has examined the patient on the date from which he certifies him to be incapable of work.
