If staff are experiencing difficulties impacting their health at work, they can self-refer for advice, but a self-referral does not result in a written report to an individual’s supervisor department.

If written recommendations from Oh are required a management referral should be completed instead. This will be advised by Oh is needed.

To arrange an appointment the relevant form should be completed and sent confidentially to Occupational Health.

On receipt of the completed self-referral form the earliest available appointment will be sent to the employee and if inconvenient changed to a suitable alternative.

Covid risk assessment referrals

Managers should discuss any concerns regarding Covid Risk Assessment in the first instance with the individual and agree any adjustments that may be required.

If further support or advice is needed, the Covid Risk Assessment Referral Form can be completed by managers.

This is for individuals who have ongoing health related concerns where further medical advice is required and this has not yet been provided by Oh.

This is also for individuals that have had a change in medical circumstances or medication that has occurred since their last guidance from Oh.
