Workplace Health activity during the Covid-19 pandemic

 

Workplace health team continue to work remotely with reduced staffing on site. We are contactable via MS Teams, telephone and email. 

Where possible, services are offered remotely or on-line, and we have updated some of our processes to reflect what is currently possible, so that we can support UCL as best we can.

We are open for student clinical appointments.  We are following government advice and some of our consultations will be on line during the current COVID19 pandemic.  Please do look at the appointment invite for details

Please continue to submit your health questionnaires as requested to do so by your area of study.  Our team will continue to process these remotely and will contact you if they require any further information by telephone and or email. Please direct any queries about course starts dates to the UCL Admissions team. 

Health surveillance for laboratory animal allergens  

Managers and supervisor should continue to submit for job hazard identification forms where required. We will continue to process these and will send out health questionnaires for individuals to complete. 

The team will be reviewing these remotely and may contact you by telephone for clarification on health issue you have declared. 

We have stopped undertaking routine spirometry clinics but will contact you to rebook any spirometry testing once the current Covid-19 control measures have been reviewed.
