Placement screening is an extremely cost effective use of an occupational health budget and is recognised as an excellent way to decide both whether the employee is fit for the job and whether the job fits the employee. Sound investment in a robust placement screening process will have a positive effect on the employer’s bottom line.
Our thorough placement screening is provided via a combination of screening questionnaires, nurse telephone consultations (NTCs), paper-based investigations and face-to-face medicals. Medigold designs bespoke screening packages for each of our clients as we recognise that requirements vary.
Our questionnaires can be completed and returned to Medigold in Freepost™ envelopes (provided by Medigold) or alternatively on-line via the Medigold website.
All questionnaires are processed within 24 hours and feedback provided on the same day.
All questionnaires are reviewed by one of our experienced Occupational Health Advisors. In some cases, further assessment may need to be undertaken to reach a conclusive decision as to whether the applicant is fit for employment or requires any adjustments.
Appointments can be made within 72 hours of a request - Medicals are always completed within one week of a request.
Medigold advise the employer whether the applicant is fit for employment, outlining any medical condition that could affect the individual’s ability to carry out the job. We will also offer advice as to whether any reasonable adjustments are required.
Our service is conducted within the constraints of current legislation including the Equalities Act 2010 and the best health and safety practices.
