Management Referrals

Management Referrals

If there are concerns that work could be affecting an employee’s health, or a health issue could be affecting an employee’s ability to carry out their job, then a referral to occupational health can be made for an assessment, advice, and assistance.

Our occupational health experts will carry out a confidential assessment with your employee who will then be given structured advice and recommendations on ways in which they can improve their health.

If you suspect an employee’s performance is suffering due to health, or the health and safety of colleagues is affected by their health, our Management Referrals process allows you to adequately resolve these issues.

When to Use This Service

There are several occasions when your organisation could benefit from referring an employee to us for a medical opinion, including:

  • All absence cases, particularly mental health (stress, anxiety, depression) or musculoskeletal cases.
  • An employee has frequent incidences of short-term absence with one or more reported illnesses.
  • An employee has had an accident at work and an accurate clinical record of their injuries is required, including RIDDOR incidents.
  • HR needs assistance in understanding how they can support someone in work who is struggling.
  • An employee has been, or is likely to be, off sick for longer than four weeks or where there is no foreseeable return-to-work date.
  • A manager believes that an employee’s health is being affected adversely by their work (e.g. stress, upper limb disorders or back pain).
  • An employee is about to be transferred to another job or be promoted and a medical assessment is required.
  • An employee’s performance at work may be compromised because of ill health.
  • An employee is diagnosed with a critical illness such as psychiatric ill health, cancer or heart disease.
  • An employee is thought to be suffering from alcohol, drug or substance misuse.
  • An employee has notified you that they are concerned about their own ill health, particularly if they believe their health is being affected by work. Advice is required on rehabilitation programmes for sick or disabled employees.
  • You require a report regarding an employee’s fitness to attend a disciplinary or grievance hearing.
