Occupational Health Services

What sets us apart from other Occupational Health providers is that we represent the human side of medicine. Our registration with the Care Quality Commission which means we can treat, manage and care for your employees as individuals, as well as relating to your working environment.

Many of our occupational health clients say how much they have been helped by their occupational consultations here. Whilst our occupational work is contracted by organisations, companies and workplaces, the patients and employees themselves, when they attend our practice, find enormous help from another listening ear that can pull their medical history together and make many different suggestions concerning other options for medical management and well-being.

If you take a look at the integrative medical section of our website, you will see how much knowledge we have with respect to getting people better. Therefore, our consultations are not only about getting a person back to work, but about improving the quality of their lives both at home and at work through the integrative nature of our practice. Here we find solutions to medical health and disease, which are of a much broader nature.

Medicine is excellent at coping with the 10% of symptoms related to actual disease but here we also promote the power of the individual to beat their own illness through changes to lifestyle which are very deep-rooted in nature. This type of medicine is called biological systems medicine. Therefore, rest assured, that when you send your employees to us, we will not only answer your questions from an occupational perspective, but we will be doing our best to help push patients in the right direction for those 90% of difficult situations and symptoms that have not been addressed by ordinary medicine.

We offer private occupational health appointments to help you protect and promote the health and well-being of your employees, creating a healthier workplace and workforce. Ensuring your employees receive proper occupational healthcare will  protect and enhance your image and reputation as a good employer.

Many companies have also used us for their executive medical checkup provision and also as a private GP service to executives. If you would like to know more, contact us and we can organise a lunchtime meeting with one of our GPs who can talk you through the processes and provision.
