Firstly, we would like to take this opportunity to welcome you to Guy’s and St Thomas’ NHS Foundation Trust.
As part of your clearance for the post which you have applied for, you will receive an email from the recruitment team asking you to complete the online Work Health Assessment questionnaire. In addition, you will be requested to submit documentary evidence of your immunisation history against communicable diseases including measles, Tuberculosis (TB) rubella and varicella (chickenpox). If you are a current NHS employee, or have worked/trained in the NHS previously, you should have a copy of your immunisation record. If not, we advise you to request a copy from your most recent Occupational Health provider.
If you have declared a health condition or disability (past or present) which might affect your work or be affected by your work and which might require adjustments to your work and/or your work environment, please be advised that a member of the Occupational Health team will contact you to discuss this on a confidential basis.
Occupational Health clearance may take up to four weeks to process. It is crucial that you submit your documentation no later than two weeks prior to your start date. Failure to do so will cause a delay in your Occupational Health clearance and subsequent start date.
If you have any queries regarding your Occupational Health clearance, the team can be contacted via [email protected].
