Dear Donna,

I can not see anything wrong with sending out a letter requesting
someone send a lab report or undergo testing for HIV infection.  This is
a requirement for a job and you are not breaking any confidentiality
issue. However the wording of the letter is important so you don't
frighten the employee but also that they understand the reason for the
request. 

Our letter has the following statement:

"The post for which you have applied requires additional screening for
Hepatitis B and/or Hepatitis C and HIV.  If you have an identity
validated* blood test report from a UK Occupational Health Department,
please send this to us as soon as possible. 

*Identity validated reports should include confirmation from the
occupational health department that photographic identification was seen
at the time the blood test was taken. If this is not indicated then it
is not an identity validated report."

Best wishes

Paul

Subject: [OCC-HEALTH] Exposure Prone Letters

Hi,

Was just wondering if anyone could share their thoughts or letters with
me?

We recently had an issue/complaint regarding the letters we send out
requesting applicants to attend for blood testing in relation to
exposure prone procedures.

When an individual is identified as potentially requiring blood testing
for an EEP post they are sent a letter asking them to attend for HIV,
HEP C and HEP B testing. Further information is given when an individual
attends so the letter does not go into detail about certain tests being
required depending on when the individual came into an EPP work.

Do any of you have form letters requesting that an individual supplies
HIV, HEP C and/or HEP B blood results for clearance to work in EPP
posts? If so does this letter go into detail about the date
recommendations about testing were introduced? If so/if not is there any
reason why you made this decision? Would anybody be prepared to share
any from letters you have on this subject?

Thanks for any thoughts that you have.

Donna Budden
