Sickness and absence at work is a growing concern for many small businesses, companies and larger organisations alike, with an increasing cost burden in addition to being disruptive in the workplace.
If you have an employee who is regularly absent due to short or long-term health problems or their performance at work is affected by a current medical condition, you should consider referring your employee to undertake an Independent Medical Opinion.
At Pall Mall Medical, we can provide a comprehensive and independent review using our expert team of Private GP’s, Specialist Consultants or an Occupational Health Physician when a specialist opinion is needed. This offers the employer a significant advantage over the limited information an NHS GP may provide; with more practical advice and amicable solutions. Thus empowering the employer to take a more appropriate course of action to resolve the case or improve their business outcome with the employee.
Our bespoke reports are able to advise on a medical prognosis, determine factors, such as a return-to-work date or ability to perform their normal duties, recommend reasonable adjustments that may be needed in the workplace and any impact on the Disability Discrimination Act (DDA).
