I’ve Been Told to go to Occupational Health – Help
If you have been asked to go to Occupational Health and are worried. Firstly, don’t worry. The Doctors and Nurses there have all been trained by the NHS. Although they are paid by your workplace, that will not compromise their ethical duties to deal with you fairly. – watch this video which explains exactly what this means and the benefits you can get from talking with someone
Many employees are worried though, so I’ve made this video which explains exactly how it works and benefits you can get from talking with someone like me and my professional colleagues.

If you have been asked to go to Occupational Health and are worried be assured that the service your employer is paying for is like a private health service just for you. Occupational Health professionals work to the same guidelines as your own GP and nurses at the surgery – the only difference is that the Occupational Health service you see at work will know the work you do and options available. These Doctors and Nurses work closely with management.
Remember you have a choice of whether to go or not when you have been asked to attend the workplace health service – but many people I have seen who have been worried, eventually discover that we have your best interests at heart.
Why not ring the Occupational Health service in your company for reassurance if you are worried. They will be able to put your mind at rest and are quite used to being phoned for information.
