Return To Work Assessments Across The UK
Return To Work Assessment
It may be appropriate for employees ready to return to work following a period of absence to be assessed so they can be integrated back in a safe and structured manner. A Return To Work Health Assessment is a medical examination performed with an aim of addressing any questions raised by the employer. Its primary aim is to advise management regarding the fitness to work of an employee after an absence through injury or illness. It will assess any employee's health issues and to make recommendations on what adjustments could be considered to ensure a safe/healthy working environment for that employee.
Each report will be tailored to the employee and situation but it can include advice on the medical condition itself, symptoms, prognosis, likelihood of recovery, what adjustments could be considered, and similar. The aim of the report is to inform Management and give them an expert medical opinion and sufficient information to enable them to make any onward decisions with appropriate knowledge.
An occupational Health assessment is NOT normally intended for diagnosis or treatment purposes though in some cases the Doctor could make suggestions for the employee to discuss with their own medical practitioners.
