Contacting Occupational Health

Any member of staff who has symptoms must stay at home and call their line manager and, during office hours, call Occupational Health.

To help triage calls to best support all of our staff, please contact the Occupational Health Department either by telephoning extension 5435 and leaving a message including your name and contact number or emailing occ.health@gjnh.scot.nhs.uk

The team will aim to return calls and reply to emails by the end of each day.

Priority Testing Requests
