Management Referrals

What Are Management Referrals?

The ELAS occupational health team consists of doctors, physicians, and nurses. Our management referrals programme helps ensure that your employees are able to remain in work and continue providing you with their regular level of service.

If you feel an employee would benefit from seeing an occupational health physician then management referrals are an incredibly valuable tool.

Our experts will conduct a confidential assessment by telephone or in person with your employee(s). This will provide them with structured advice and recommendations as to how they can improve their health. We will also provide you, the employer, with a comprehensive management referrals report. The report will advise on your employee’s fitness for work and any restrictions or adaptations which we would recommend. This management referrals report will also detail any diagnoses and prognoses that have been given to the employee, as well as any implications they might have with regards to the disability legislation contained within the Equality at Work Act 2010.

We can also provide relevant eligibility for retirement on the grounds of ill health if required.

All the advice is provided in a fair, sensitive and consistent manner. The advice takes into consideration the needs of your employee and their work requirements.
