Some of our more popular services…
Medicals for Night Workers
Night workers ought to be given medical checks at regular intervals by their employers, as required in the European Working Time Directive legislation. Just Health has proved themselves to be a pioneer in this area by using health screening questionnaires that enable any staff who flag up as at risk to be referred to either their own general practitioner or to our occupational health team, to then be followed up.
Our assessment for night workers has been carefully crafted by our occupational health team to ensure that they cover all aspects of night working, including issues such as lone working and ensuring that regularly given, time-sensitive medication can be taken at the correct times. All of our questionnaires are screened independently, guaranteeing that employee’s information is kept confidential, and we will refer employees when appropriate. Just Health will keep you informed of any risks that arise and provide all of the needed certificates.
It has been recognized that preventative medicine will have the biggest effect on our health and lives for the foreseeable future. Our health screening service, which is included as part of our occupational health service, is designed to do the following things.
- Detect potentially life threatening diseases and illnesses at the earliest opportunity
- Provide education in health which will directly lead to improvements in both the work practices and lifestyle choices of employees
- Provide baseline results which will be used for referencing in the future
Having a comprehensive health screening service available for your employees will make them feel valued, satisfy your requirements when it comes to your duty of care and most importantly keep your staff happy and healthy. We offer a number of different health screens, ranging from our simple but effective Health Essentials Screen to our more comprehensive Platinum Health Screen. In addition to these health screens, we also offer custom health screens to suit your specific needs that can be carried out at our own clinics or on site at your business premises. All of our screens will provide a comprehensive written report, and where required we can provide both health workshops and road shows for your staff.
Our health screens routinely include the following…
- Plasma lipid and cholesterol levels
- Diabetes testing
- Anaemia and blood dyscrasias testing
- Cardiac risk assessment and ECGs (both resting and exercise)
- Testing of lung function
- Assessment of vision
- Assessment of hearing (audiometry)
Alcohol and Drug Testing
Industries that carry out sensitive work may need to prove that staff are not taking drugs or alcohol. Included in our occupational health services is the ability to randomly or routinely screen for alcohol and drugs, using chain of custody methods that are widely accepted, as well as provide expert advice in this area. We can also provide an expedited rapid response service when needed. It is essential that you as an employer can deal with employees who appear to be under the influence of drugs or alcohol quickly and effectively, especially in industries that use heavy machinery or deal with transportation.
Screening of Employees
It’s beneficial to both the business and employees to screen for any potential medical conditions that may have an impact on them carrying out their duties. Your applicants will be sent an email (which Just Health provides) that directs them to our secure website where they can complete a questionnaire. We also provide you with paper questionnaires, along with pre-paid business reply envelopes, for those applicants who do not have access to a computer. This can then be returned to our occupational health team. Once processed, we will follow up with the employee if necessary. We have to abide by pre-agreed time-limits in order to prevent any delays with recruitment, and any information we require will be collected directly from the applicant’s GP. All of your cases will be tracked efficiently and we will also provide management of information.
Referrals to Management
Long term and short term employee sickness can be disruptive and expensive to your business. We often find that GP’s do not do a good job of providing enough information to you as the employer, in order to help you with planning your next steps. We will provide you advice that’s practical and solutions that are realistic, as well as our expert reports. In addition to our extensive experience as an occupational health provider, we have a full team consisting of Physicians, General Practitioners, Cognitive Behavioural Therapists, Occupation Health Advisors and Physiotherapists who fully understand the needs and requirements of your business.
As part of our service we provide recommendations and advice when it comes to reasonable adaptations, risk assessments, return to work schedules, prognoses and the DDA (Disability Discrimination Act).

These issues can negatively affect your employee’s personal relationships, home life and ultimately have a knock-on effect when it comes to their work life, as attendance and work attitude can be detrimentally affected. Resentment can build up among colleagues and may become a major disruption if an employee is regularly absent due to problems in their personal life.

Our private GP Membership Scheme has been specifically setup in a way that avoids the delays of simple treatment, which is often the cause of these issues.
There are no issues regarding confidentiality and there are also no delays pending approval thanks to the attendance of these clinics being completely free of charge to your staff. Recruitment and staff retention is also improved due to our clinic membership schemes and it can also provide a boost in morale for staff. Despite the clinics costing a fraction of the costs of private medical insurance (PMI), staff often appreciate the clinics more than private medical insurance. Some businesses only use our occupational health service for specific key roles within the business, while others offer the membership to every employee.
