Student Mental Health Forum

Occupational Health

Occupational health is a specialised area of medicine concerned with the way in which an individual’s health can affect his or her ability to do a job, and conversely how the work environment can affect an individual’s health.

Occupational Health aims to promote the physical, mental and social well-being of students and to reduce the incidence of ill-health arising from exposure to work place hazards.  Offering a range of services to support students, such as:

Students may be seen

Following faculty referral:  Tutors may decide that it is appropriate to formally refer students by writing to the Occupational Health Services for a medical opinion. Following the consultation a written report will be provided and almost always the contents and indeed a copy of this will be available to the student.

Following self-referral:  Students can make their own arrangements to be seen if they have any relevant concerns. In these cases the consultation is strictly confidential and no reports are provided unless specifically requested by the individual concerned.

Statutory appointments:  Where necessary for health surveillance required under legislation or screening due to course requirements.
