Occupational Health

The Occupational Health Department deals with all work place health concerns for Trust staff.

Health checks for new employees

Occupational Health ensures that all staff have a work health assessment prior to employment. The purpose of the assessment is to determine that it is safe for new staff to commence work, whether they will need any immunisations, and whether any adjustments may need to be made to their working environment.
