Our aim is to provide cost effective, quality occupational medicine service to companies within the Horsham Area. Our involvement with companies can include:
An assessment of the occupational medicine needs of a company.
A company doctor role to handle health reviews, pre-employment selection, hearing, skin and respiratory conservation/surveillance programmes.
Other work related assessments (e.g. fork lift truck driver medicals, fitness to work assessments, sickness absence reviews).
To keep abreast of changes in the production process and new guidance (including legislation from Europe and HSE), and apply it where necessary.
To advise management on any other aspects of workplace medicine and medical practice generally.
At all times, our intention is to advise management in order to maintain and improve productivity in a safe environment.
An occupational medicine service obviously has to work closely with the Health and Safety Adviser employed by the company and sometimes with the HR Department. However, some details of the medical issues (e.g. pre-employment questionnaires) would remain confidential and not accessible by management. This is currently considered best practice and Dr. Dean and Dr Fisher are very aware of all the medico-legal and ethical aspects of an occupational medicine service.
Our occupational medicine service advises management on medical aspects related to the workplace and workforce. We would tailor a suitable programme specifically to the needs of the company.
When appropriate, Nurse led sessions for health surveillance or biological sampling can be arranged either on site or at Park Surgery.
Obviously the doctor and nurse would require a suitable room to be provided if consultations and examinations are performed on site. Usually the first aid room would suffice provided it has a couch. All necessary equipment for sessional work would be provided by Park Surgery.
All outcomes of our work, including pre-employment assessments, would be communicated to the company in writing by Dr. Rattan, and these need to be retained in the employee's file. These statements would not include confidential medical information.
Having a Company Doctor who is also a G.P. helps considerably when unforeseen problems arise, e.g. customers from overseas who are taken ill. In these cases, Dr Rattan and Park Surgery can provide a quick and efficient general medical service to resolve the problem.
Charges are usually made by invoicing for the actual work done, itemised for the time taken and charged at the hourly rate pro-rata.
This is for guidance - all charges are negotiable.
