Pre employment Checks

URGENT INFORMATION  - updated on 29/06/2022

Pre-Employment Health Questionnaire - Occupational Health are currently dealing with a significant increase in workload which is impacting on our waiting times. Please note that if you are sending a Pre-Employment Health Questionnaire, our current turnaround time is 2weeks. For clearance check please contact Recruitment after this period. 

Pre-Employment Checks

Before you start your new job you will be asked to complete a questionnaire containing all of your details. You will also be asked questions regarding your health, and any relevant immunisations/vaccinations you have received in the past. 

This information is then assessed by a qualified nurse in Occupational Health to determine if there are any current or potential health issues that may affect you in your new post, along with any adjustments that may need to be considered. The purpose of this screening is to ensure both you and your employer are safeguarded.

For many people this paper screening is the first and only stage of pre-employment screening, however there may be times when further information is required and you may receive a telephone call from the Occupational Health Nurse or be sent an appointment to attend Occupational Health to discuss this further.

Occupations undertaking Exposure Prone Procedures (EPPs) will require screening for blood borne viruses such as:

  • HIV
  • Hep B 
  • Hep C
