  1. Audit of pre-employment assessments by occupational health departments in the National Health Service.

    Article - En anglais

    Pre-employment health assessment of applicants to the National Health Service (NHS) is one of the functions of occupational health departments in the NHS.

    This paper describes the results of a process and outcome audit of this activity, concentrating on the current practice of occupational health departments.

    The audit was carried out by 40 NHS occupational health units who provided information on a standard questionnaire on all pre-employment assessments undertaken over a three-month period.

    This produced 9139 questionnaire returns.

    The analysis showed that the most common method of assessment was the use of a self-administered questionnaire alone (49.4%). A self-administered questionnaire followed by a nurse interview as standard practice was the next most common method (34.1%), but referral to a physician was uncommon.

    The outcome of the assessments for 98% of all applicants was'fit for work'A total of 120 individuals (1.3%) were assessed as'fit to work, but with some restriction'and 65 individuals (0.7%) were considered'unfit'The most common reasons for rejection were abnormal body mass index (40%), skin conditions (21.5%) and psychiatric conditions (10.8%). The most common reasons for restriction were musculoskeletal conditions (27.5%), skin conditions (15%) and abnormal body mass index and psychiatric conditions (both 10.8%).
