Can a medical practitioner certify own 888

Just wondering if a GP friend can certify their own 888? They are busy busy and this may help.

In Australia, statutory declarations must be witnessed by a
person prescribed by the Statutory Declarations Act 1959 and
Statutory Declarations Regulations 1993. Any attachments to
the Declaration must be certified by a prescribed person.
Prescribed persons include those who are a:

• Justice of the Peace;
medical practitioner;
• legal practitioner;
• civil marriage celebrant or registered minister of religion;
• dentist;
• nurse;
• optometrist;
• pharmacist;
• physiotherapist;
• full-time teacher;
• bank manager or bank officer with 5 or more continuous
years of service;
• postal manager or permanent employee of the Australian
Postal Commission with 5 or more continuous years of service;
• police officer; or
• public servant with 5 or more continuous years of service.

I'm a pharmacist and I wouldn't certify or witness my own documents, definitely conflict of interest. Just give it to a colleague to do. I have other pharmacists in the family but i'm going to just give it to an outsider to do.

What ADN said is correct. Definite conflict of interest.

It is a definite conflict of interest.

Also my friend's wife is a JP and we were told for her not to witness his 888 as it could be seen as a conflict of interest.
