Occupational Health referrals are made by Line Managers, Health and Safety Managers or by HR.  

There are different reasons why a line manager may refer an employee, which may include: 

  • Long-term sickness absence from the University 
  • Frequent or continuing short-term sickness absence due to a health problem
  • Being unable to carry out work duties as a result of a health problem.
