I hope I am correct in saying that Bertrand's postulate can be rephrased this way: the maximum prime gap following prime p is p-3, if p > 3.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Is this the closest proven result for the maximal prime gap?

Wolfram MathWorld mentions 803 as a large known prime gap following 90874329411493, and 4247 following 10^314-1929 !
