Oh blimey, poor woman! (Both you and the client,,,,,)
 
To me it sounds like yes they are medicalising, but maybe trying to eliminate all possibilities of any "disability related" issues before embarking on management procedures.
 
If you saw her last year do you see a need to see her again?

Subject: [OCC-HEALTH] Colleagues reporting body odour

 


Dear all
I have been asked to see again a lady whose colleagues insist has fairly severe episodes of body odour.
I am now being asked to confirm or deny any medical issues causing the problem.
This query has been formulated by the company lawyers.
The lady in question has a high BMI around 40 and is experiencing very heavy episodes of bleeding PV
I saw the lady in question last year.She is really distraught,using every type of deodorant etc
I am happy to see her to reassure her and have already advised that the most likely outcome is that I report that there is no medical explanation for the issue being raised by her colleagues and that I found no medical cause for any concern.
Has anyone any advice/guidance?

I tried last year to get the lady to use CBT for her self confidence. Single person office /home office working  is not an option .
I do realise that this is a management issue but if there is any other avenue I can explore which would be helpful I would be really pleased to hear about it
Many thanks as always for all the brilliant feedback on this site.

Lynda
