Welcome to Business Health – Experts in Occupational Health

Business Health is a doctor-led service providing authoritative, pragmatic advice to both employees and managers about fitness for work, workplace adjustments and support. Detailed clinical assessments explore medical reasons for absence and difficulties in the workplace, clearly separating them from non-medical issues.

We provide clear, prompt and pragmatic advice to managers, defining and justifying adjustments where there is a real medical need. We spend time with employees explaining their illnesses, focusing on capability rather than incapacity, exploring treatment options and demonstrating self-help strategies.

Our emphasis on self-help empowers employees to take control of her physical and emotional difficulties building hope, understanding and practical self-reliance. Verbal advice is supported by our unique set of web-based training and support videos, printouts and text messaging prompts.
