The role of an Occupational Medicine Doctor in employee health management:

An Occupational Doctor is a medical doctor or medical specialist, who is trained and experienced in the effects of work on health and health on work. They can work with organisations and employees to provide advice and management of health issues affecting the ability to work, and/or whether work is affecting their health.
Usually, reports are available within one to two weeks after the employee has been seen, but if a more urgent opinion is required we can often accommodate his. We will need to review the individual’s medical notes which we usually obtain with their consent from their GP, and we may need to consult with the person’s general practitioner or other specialists. This often takes time because it can be quite difficult to get copies of records from a busy general practice, and/or specialist’s office, so please allow for this. We will of course let you know if there are going to be any delays because of this.
We can provide you with a referral form which enables you to provide all the information we need from the employer and includes some generic questions that can often be helpful to have answers to in such cases. You can of course ask additional questions.
