Occupational Health Assessments for Students on Health and Social Work Programmes

Students on Health and Social Work programmes and Life and Medical Sciences programmes need to have occupational health clearance before starting placements.


All students on these programmes must have occupational health clearance before commencing their placements.   This will involve a screening meeting with an Occupational Health nurse and could involve having injections.

If you have any questions or concerns please contact your tutor or a member of the Occupational Health team.

How to book your appointment

Admissions will send you a link with the online occupational health questionnaire please make sure that you complete this as soon as possible. Once we receive the questionnaire Occcupational Health will make sure to book the appointment before your placement date. 

It is important that you complete the questionnaire as soon as possible as any delay might impact your placement.

Rescheduling appointments during Screening

You MUST attend your appointment, as missed appointments could cost your School.

If you are unable to attend or need to change your  appointment please email or call 01707 281328 (available Mon-Thu 8.30 - 17.00 - Fri 8.30 - 16.00) and we will endeavour to find a more suitable date/time.

There are very few health conditions that would stop you doing your programme. You are expected to inform us of any health issue so please don’t be concerned about telling us. Health issues could include anything from HIV to mental health conditions, or any other minor health issues.

When you come for screening we can chat about your situation and discuss with you the best thing to do.

If your health situation changes while you are on your course, whether you have fallen ill or are pregnant, you may need a follow up assessment.  Please contact the team if you have any questions.

Health Clearance 

Your tutor will be aware of your clearence status.
