Sickness / Absence reporting

Contact FirstCare on 0333 321 8086 if you are going to be absent from work for more than two hours due to sickness or unauthorised absence (such as care of a dependant).

FirstCare is open 24/7.

If your absence is because of illness, FirstCare will offer you confidential medical advice and support from registered general nurses during your absence from work. Once registered, your sickness will remain OPEN until you contact FirstCare and CLOSE it with your date and time of returning to work. The relevant information that you give will also go to Occupational Health, enabling them to provide any support that you may need on your return.

For further information, please consult your FirstCare leaflet or view the OUH intranet (available to staff only).
