Hi Sharon

Based on this I think it depends on the industry you work in. We have shops throughout the North and my geographical area is quite vast. So yes they may be able to get to see their GP but not travel 2-3 hours to see Occupational Health. They also probably know their Human Resources representative and if they have not previously met or talked to me, they are aware of my existence, who I am and what my role is.

Whilst I'm not saying it is ideal and it does depend on their co-operation, Occupational Health Adviser's need to what is appropriate and best for the business.

Cheers H

An issue discussed at length in the past - I just don't do them. End of.
I have my own reasons for this (nasty experience) but really cannot see
that they are useful. My thoughts (not necessarily in order of
importance)

If they can get to the GP for a sick note why cant they get to OH? 
If they are so poorly that they are house bound and the GP is visiting
personally I think an OH visit is an intrusion - better info may be
sought and more sensitively by telecon/GP reports etc
If I was "sick" there is no way that I would someone who is basically a
stranger visiting my home
I have images of poorly people struggling around with a Dyson in
preparation for the visit.............
If they are "stressed" or other mental health issue and cant face the
workplace - well I still ask them to come in, its part of a graded
exposure - the first time they cross the threshold should not be the day
that they return to work. Dissipate some of the anxiety by getting them
in early on
If you visit someone at home you are in their home, a guest, its a
different dynamic
They can take ages.....your time may be more productively spent
elsewhere
Which individual would you take with you? I dare say that the absent
person would have to agree and also the fact that medical issues may be
discussed
Some people meet individuals in a neutral location eg garden centre,
however this is still fraught with difficulties, in a public place
talking about medical issues, time spent getting there and back etc

Dear All
Previuos OHA's in my role have attended home visits accompanied by
personnel if an individual cannot attend site.  I personaly have
concerns about this due to confidentiality. Plus in some  instances it
rienforces the "sick role". Where possible I do telephone consultations
but sometimes you need to see the white of there eyes if you know what I
mean.
What does everyone else think and what suggestions do yo have as
alternatives.

Look forward to your answers.
