- ensure that University achieves best practice in the management of occupational health risks.
- reduce ill-health absence and the incidence of work-related ill health.
The usual things we do are:
- Advice to individuals and Units, including referral to a physician if needed
- Proactive intervention in suitable cases of sickness absence

Employees should contact their own general practitioners about treatment and general health matters since Occupational Health can only provide a service for work-related issues.
