Online or on the Telephone

Many clients don't need an occupational health adviser on site all the time but may need advice at short notice. You can speak directly to your adviser on the 'phone, or if you need written advice you can use e-mail.

We are happy to make arrangements for you to receive advice and medical reports electronically, using the appropriate data protection methods. We also provide an affordable subscription service so that your managers can have access to occupational health advice when they need it, from a named occupational health adviser or company doctor.

On Site

Most employers are able to adapt existing facilities so that occupational health services can be delivered on site. This is more convenient, reduces costs and means that employees are not away from their work for longer than necessary.

We will help you to identify and prioritise your occupational health needs so that cost effective solutions can be introduced in your workplace.


We can provide the full range of occupational health services and medicals including:

Pre-placement health assessments.
to ensure that employees are fit for the job they will be doing. We can do this by using a special questionnaire that is reviewed by our occupational health nurse. Employees with specific fitness requirements or exposed to health risks may require a hands on medical examination. Doubtful cases are referred to our consultant occupational physician for an opinion.

Health Surveillance.
Targeted medical checks to ensure that employees remain in good health and are not being harmed by their work.

Hearing checks and audiometry.
As part of a hearing conservation programme.

Health risk assessment.
Find out what to do about health hazards at work. Evaluate work pressure and the risk of stress related illness.
