Occupational health

We specialise in the effects of work on an employee’s health and the effect an employee’s health condition has on their ability to undertake or continue in their role.
We provide objective advice to Line Managers to enable them to manage an employee’s health situation in the workplace.

Staff counselling

We are able to provide short term confidential counselling on a variety of topics including anxiety, bereavement, bullying, illness, mental health issues, relationships, trauma and work related stress.

1.3 million uk workers are suffering from work-related ill health
Employees lose 30 productive working days a year through sickness and presenteeism
12.5 million Working days lost due to work-related stress



Early Intervention

Early intervention is key to supporting employees in accessing appropriate treatment and services, as well as helping them to continue to be able to work or return to work at the appropriate time. It is well known that ‘work is healthy ‘and our intervention is key to ensuring that each employee feels supported and able to be in work as soon as they are able.
Through our model every contact an employee receives is from a clinician specialised in absence management and return to work, ensuring all recommendations are specific and evidenced based.

Vocational Health Model

With regards to managing absenteeism and presenteeism we use a Vocational Health Model rather than a traditional Occupational Health Model, which means we use a case management approach to drive return to work outcomes, rather than merely mitigating risk by solely focusing on health barriers.
Our Vocational Health model is backed by the papers written by Dame Carol Black and David Frost CBE, Working for a healthier tomorrow and Health at work, an independent review of sickness absence. These papers state very clearly that a case management approach is optimum for managing sickness absence in the workplace.

We are happy to answer any questions you might have.
