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 involved having injections.

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

Before  booking your appointment

Please make sure that all Health Questionnairs are completed with the Doctors's signature and stamp before sending to occupational.health@herts.ac.uk 

Booking and rescheduling appointments during Screening

Please contact your programme tutor who will have a list of times and dates.

If you have missed your appointment for screening or need to change the date, please contact your programme tutor and they will email Occupational Health requesting a new appointment. 

Declaring a health issue

There are very few 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 

An email will be sent to your tutor to confirm you are cleared for placement.
