Dr Darshini Wickramasinghe of Epsom, Vic, had a patient who complained: “Doctor, over the past week I was unwell. I haven’t been able to get better so I’m here. My throat is sore and I think I have tonsillitis. I was sick last week as well and I had croup then...”

The doctor’s attention now caught, she stifled a smile and proceeded to write the medical certificate requested.

“So, where exactly do you work?” she inquired.
