Medical Screening is an extremely cost effective and speedy process to determine the health of prospective employees.
The Questionnaire for each candidate is assessed by an Occupational Health Nurse, occasionally with reference to an Occupational Health Physician. We evaluate the individual against the job criteria and our knowledge of the job and advise accordingly.
Our objective is to assess the medical suitability of the employee for the job and to advise you of any restrictions/disabilities or recommendations that may be relevant.
Typically if the assessment is straightforward a fitness form is completed and issued to the appointing officer within 48 hours of receipt.
In a very small percentage of cases it may be necessary for The Occupational Health Nurse to obtain a report from the candidate's own medical advisers (G.P./Specialist) or arrange a pre-employment consultation assessment with one of our Occupational Health Physicians. This will be arranged in conjunction with the Appointing Officer.
If necessary a medical assessment will be recommended.
