Self-Referral - information for managers (secured)
University employees who have not been referred by their School/Unit but who would like advice on a health matter that affects work are encouraged to self-refer to Occupational Health.
Ill Health Retiral - information for managers
The referral document Referral for Assessment of Ill-health leading to Early Retirement on Medical Grounds should only be used to assess if the current health of an employee would meet the criteria required by their pension provider to be considered for early retirement on the grounds of ill- health (IHR). The employee will have to be assessed by the Occupational Health Physician (OHP) who is approved by the individual pension schemes to do this.
Ill health or accident reporting
The University has a duty under the Health and Safety at Work etc. Act 1974, and the Management of Health and Safety at Work Regulations 1999, to protect University employees' health against hazards in the workplace.
