We offer this in a wide variety of methods. We may have contact with you following completion of a new starter health questionnaire; we may offer you essential occupational immunisations; you following a referral from your line manager following a period of absence; or we may see you as part of an ongoing health surveillance programme under COSHH regulation or Health and Safety Law.
