infinity occupational health assessments
 

Clarity and definition

Our emphasis is on providing clear and concise occupational health advice to help maintain a company's healthy workforce.

Once an occupational health assessment has taken place, we aim to provide a report to your company within 3 working days as standard and preferably sooner.

In order to achieve this we send reports electronically; these are encrypted during storage, transmission and password protected to maintain a high degree of confidentiality.

Our vision is to integrate high-quality modern information technology services which enables us to produce high-quality, evidence-based work. This includes the use of voice recognition software, which links to our software and specially designed templates.

We provide references and links to current medical evidence using specialised online software to provide the best estimate and prognosis in difficult cases.

We work with companies including management and human resources to ensure customer satisfaction, and always aim to give a definitive and evidence based opinion so that companies can move forward and manage cases appropriately. We are guided by the ethical standards produced by the Faculty of Occupational Medicine. We take our role in sickness absence management very seriously in providing an evidence-based, independent opinion.

Our team regularly audit our reports randomly to ensure consistency and reliability as standard.

Our Managing Director has been really pleased with the quality of your reports - especially how thorough they are

Referral


Referral


Management referrals

We hope to be able to help with any occupational medical problem or service so please get in touch however large or small! We are happy to answer queries by telephone and we will endeavour to reply to email queries within one working day (and hopefully much sooner)

All referrals are assessed by a qualified Occupational Health Physician within 24 hours who remains the point of contact with your company.

  Technology helps communicate our advice quickly

We have designed our own management referral form for companies to use which can be completed easily - if you have any questions at all please ask!

Normally once completed, the referral form is sent to us via email, although we would be happy to accept referrals by post if you prefer. We are always happy to discuss referrals in advance.

There are a number of standard occupational health questions which can be used, and we also encourage specific questions relating to the case in question.

Prior to referral, consent must be obtained from the company for the person to be assessed. It is generally good practice to be as transparent as possible and it should be noted that ethically the content of all management referrals can be shared with the employee if they request to do so.

our occupational health assessments

We have accrued a significant amount of experience practising in occupational health in addition to years of medical training and previous experience in medical specialities, so you can be assured that our assessments will be professional and provide the best results possible for your company.

Wherever possible we want to help employees to fulfill healthy and productive working lives, and come to a win-win solution in difficult or complex cases.

We often use remote telephone assessments with a senior physician to enable flexible and fast occupational health doctor assessments where appropriate to do so. This allows us to provide a report sometimes even within 24 hours of a referral in particularly urgent cases.

What is involved?

An assessment by occupational health doctor take into account the specific role and requirements and assesses how medical issues effect this. A full medical and employment history is taken, assessing together with any psychological or social factors which may be relevant.

As an organisation, we ensure that our occupational health practitioners keep up to date within the rapidly changing field of occupational health, taking account of developments such as legal cases which impact on employment decisions, and research findings in occupational health and medicine as a whole.

Fitness for Work Assessment

Part of the fitness for work assessment matches up the functional ability of the person in question to the actual requirements of the job. This includes:

  • Physical attributes (stamina, mobility, locomotor function, posture, dexterity and grip),
  • Sensory (coordination, balance, vision, hearing),
  • Intellectual (memory, attention, concentration, depression, anxiety, motivation)
  • Miscellaneous features such as treatment side effects, risk of incapacitation, any aids or appliances which are needed or assessment of 3rd party risks (for example risk of infection in food handlers).
 We take into account the specific fitness requirements of any job

Generally a report will include:

Background information -including the scope and purpose of the assessment and that the person consented for a report to be released

A brief summary of the reasons for referral.

An explanation of the medical situation is given, although it is not necessary for confidential medical information to be included unless absolutely necessary, and this would be with the express consent of the person involved.

A key feature is explaining how the medical issues impact on function as it relates to undertaking work tasks.

Options for treatment and whether there are any obstacles to this, or if unexplored possibilities exist. An indication is normally given regarding progress made or anticipated in obtaining treatment and the prospects for recovery over the short and long-term. Any other issues preventing a return to work would be discussed.

Importantly any specific questions raised by management or Human Resources should be answered and an opinion and recommendations should be given definitively on:
