When you have a concern about an employee’s mental or physical health, particularly in relation to their ability to fulfil their job role, you can refer them to one of our Occupational Health Physicians or Advisors. Whether you are trying to manage an employee back into the business following a period of long-term absence, seeking advice on adjustments to support ongoing health issues, or you need help managing sickness absence, we have a highly experienced and qualified team of practitioners on hand.

A standard referral appointment can take up to an hour (including report writing time). For more complex cases (including mental ill health and multiple medical conditions), we allow up to 1.25 hours (including report writing time) to allow more time if this is required. Appointments are usually conducted face-to-face at our medical centre in West Bromwich; however we can also deliver this service virtually or as a telephone consultation.

The four most common referrals we see are:

Fit to work

A fit to work assessment determines an employee’s physical and mental ability to perform their role safely and effectively. The aim is to ensure that employees can meet the demands of the role without putting themselves or others at risk of injury or harm.

Return to work

Return to work assessments are for employees who had an extended period away from work due to illness or injury, and now need to be examined to see if they can return to the workplace.

Sickness absence

Sickness absence management is a process for managing absenteeism caused by illness or health related issues. Our Physicians assess employees and help develop a roadmap for their return to work.

Ill health retirement

An ill health retirement assessment is a formal evaluation conducted by our Physicians to determine whether an employee is medically eligible to retire early due to health reasons.
