If you tell us about a health issue whilst we’re getting to know each other a meeting with you, your personal consultant and one of our in-house qualified health professionals will be arranged .

This is an opportunity to explore, in an informal setting, what your health barriers to employment are and agree a health plan that works for you.

By fully understanding your health issue your personal consultant and health adviser will tailor the service to your requirements, making sure any employment goals and aspirations are suitable for you.
