People in Guernsey could soon get their medical certificates online for the first time.
The trial will allow people to claim benefits using the internet and remove the need for paper versions.
The States hope it will speed up the process and encourage islanders to be part of the move towards improved, user-friendly, digital public services.
A group of GPs from each of the island's practices have volunteered to be part of the trial and will issue digital medical certificates to patients who wish to take part.
The trial is due to start in the coming weeks and employers can expect to receive the first of the digital certificates.
Those involved with the trial will be invited to give feedback which could help shape future versions of the system.
