Just to let you know... If you are an existing user before 18th September, you may notice the model documents have changed. This is to coincide with our website relaunch: we wanted to refresh the content too. Don't worry, these are not legally required changes so you can continue to use the previous version you have saved or downloaded. (We have kept the previous date as well to make it easy to reference.)
This form is for an employee to give their consent for their employer to have access to a medical report, and includes their rights under the Access to Medical Reports Act 1988 and GDPR.
This letter can be used to ask an employee to attend an occupational health assessment. Employee consent is not needed under medical reports legislation when the medical practitioner is not responsible for the ongoing care of the employee, as a GP would be. The letter refers the employee to the employee privacy notice for more information on personal data held by the organisation.
This letter should be sent to an employee to arrange a meeting after an occupational health assessment has been obtained, so that the organisation can discuss the contents of the report with the employee.
This letter should be sent to an employee to confirm the discussions about the occupational health report that have taken place. The steps to be taken by the organisation to assist the employee back into work, identified in the report, should be included.
