As a Notary Public I often assist doctors and nurses throughout the Lancaster and Harrogate areas with the forms required by the Australian medical authorities.
Documents that may be certifying by a notary public may include: -
•Medical degree certificates
The Notary Public will need to see all the original documents and photocopies of each. A number of copies of each document may be required.
The notary public will usually require proof from a university that degree certificates were genuinely awarded. I am able to telephone the GMC and get instant confirmation of registration from them.
A document to be certified for use in Australia usually requires the Notary Public to confirm that the document is certified as a true copy of the original as seen/sighted by the Notary.
Other documents may require a statement by the Notary Public that the applicant has appeared before the Notary, has been identified by the Notary, and has signed the document in the presence of the Notary.
If you are a doctor or nurse working in the Lancaster or Harrogate areas and require help preparing your documents for Australia, please do give me a ring or send me an email.
