The cost of sickness absence to business

Absence from work cost the UK economy £13.2 billion as the average employee took almost seven (6.7) days off sick (source CBI, 2008 survey). The Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development (source CIPD’s 2009 Absence Management survey) estimate that sickness absence costs £666 per employee per year and averaged 6.4 days per employee; giving an average cost of just over £100/day.

At just £100/day this estimate probably under estimates all the extra unquantifiable costs such as management time, loss of productivity, increased overtime or contractor levels.

What is an Occupational Health (OH) Assessment?

An Occupational Health Assessment is a medical examination performed by an Occupational Health Physician with an aim of addressing questions raised by the employer. Its primary aim is to advise management regarding the employee’s health issue and to make recommendations on what adjustments could be considered to ensure a safe/healthy working environment for that employee. It can also be an assessment of somebody’s fitness to work.

Each Occupational Health report will be tailored to the employee and situation but it can include advice on the medical condition itself, symptoms, prognosis, likelihood of recovery, what adjustments could be considered, and similar. The aim of the report is to inform Management and give them an expert medical opinion and sufficient information to enable them to make any onward decisions with appropriate knowledge.

An occupational Health assessment is NOT normally intended for diagnosis or treatment purposes though in some cases the Doctor could make suggestions for the employee to discuss with their own medical practitioners.

The process – arranging an appointment with an OH doctor

An assessment can be organised at anytime including: Employee still at work: An employee may be attending work regularly but could be showing signs of struggling and it may be the case that some timely changes are all that are required to keep them at work safely and productively.

Regular short-term absences: Somebody with regular short-term absences could benefit from an assessment to ensure there are no underlying more serious health issues. Medium / Long term absences: Employees that have had substantial time away from work could be referred for an assessment. Return to Work: It may be appropriate for employees ready to return to work following a period of absence to be assessed so they can be integrated back in a safe and structured manner.

A single one–off assessment is normally sufficient for most employees but for more serious illnesses then it may be appropriate to keep the employee under regular review.

Regent Street Clinic has clinics
throughout the UK

What people are

…a 6-9 month wait for an MRI scan (of my back) on the NHS, versus 2 DAYS !! privately, as arranged by Regent Street Clinic. The discounted price because I didn’t have health insurance meant I could afford the scan and still do the Xmas shopping!! – great way to bypass long waits …

MRI madness….

I was lucky to find this diamond of a clinic in Nottingham when I was visiting some friends recently (I live in Berlin, Germany). Its strength is definitely the outstanding service, they made me feel like mine was the most important problem in the world and went out of their way to make me feel looked after and cared for at a frightening time. I’m going to send an invitation to come to Berlin to repay my thanks. Peace and love to all.

When we were going through a difficult time in July this clinic offered us support and access to the doctor (who we got to know very well) virtually when we needed it. The staff was friendly and understanding (complete opposite to most receptionists) and although we have now left Nottingham we are still grateful for the help we were given at that time.

This is an excellent private clinic and was very reassuring for me when I needed a quick answer (it also has the dishiest doctor in Nottingham!). Highly recommended, not expensive and easy to find, with lots of time to explore all the issues. This is just what we’ve been after in Nottingham.

This clinic is the best kept secret in Nottingham. Even though it is a private clinic, the doctor told me I didn’t need any further tests etc and instead was very reassuring that my symptoms would settle on their own (which they did!).He spent 40 minutes with me in a relaxing environment that felt non-clinical and spoke in a down to earth manner. Great value at £95 and highly recommended. (The bonus was that the doctor was a bit of alright!)

Did you realise how difficult it is for visitors to the UK to receive non-urgent medical treatment? Really I was amazed to learn how difficult it is – thank God for this clinic or otherwise, my ingrowing toenail would have been left to rot! The cost of the consultation (£95) was reimbursed by my US insurance company and the medication cost a lot less than in the US. We tried the NHS clinic first but were told we would have to pay anyway and we couldn’t be seen for 5 days! This clinic was just what the doctor ordered.
