Occupational Health Service
The occupational health service for the University is provided by GO Health Services which is part of NHS Grampian. All staff are entitled to consult the service for advice on health matters. While you are encouraged to discuss any health problems relating to your work in the first instance with your line manager, you may wish to consult the occupational health service for medical advice and assistance
- if you are concerned that some aspect of your job is making you ill
- if you feel that you cannot perform at work to the best of your ability because of a health problem.
The service is staffed by occupational health physicians and advisers. All consultations are in strict medical confidence. If you choose to consult the service then details of discussions will not be supplied to the University or to any other person without your consent.
GO Health Services is based at Foresterhill Lea on the Foresterhill site (see map below). Consultations are by appointment at Foresterhill Lea and also at Taylor E Building in the High Street in Old Aberdeen (next to the Old Brewery).
You can either
- Ask your line manager to get Human Resources to refer you to the Occupation Health Service (this is the preferred route and is called a management referral): or
- Contact the Service yourself 01224-553663 (this is called a self-referral).
