New Appointment - Dr Jo Tremlett

Occupational Health Services are happy to announce that Dr Jo Tremlett has joined the team as an Occupational Health Physician.

In her own words:

"I became a specialist in Occupational Medicine in 2009. Since then I have worked in a variety of organisations and businesses providing advice and support to individuals and their managers. I have worked in the commercial and public sectors including manufacturing and service industries, local government, emergency services and the NHS.  I am particularly interested in the protection of health at work and supporting individuals with disabilities in the workplace. My aim is to get the best possible outcome for the individual and for the organisation. This might involve providing medical advice to the worker and suggesting options for modifications to the work tasks or environment to the manager. I hope to play a part in offering a service that promotes health and wellbeing to the staff of the University."

Replacement IT System for Occupational Health Service

To: Departmental Administrators

From: Paul Morris, IT Services

Action: For information and for circulation to colleagues as appropriate

 

Dear colleagues,

I’m writing to let you know about the replacement IT system for the Occupational Health Service (OHS), which will be going live in November. The upgraded system will support all the continuing work of the OHS including Pre-Employment Checks, Health Surveillance Programmes, Occupational Health Referrals, Appointments and Immunisations. 

A key benefit of the new system is that managers and employees will be able to self-register and submit data electronically rather than by completing hard copy forms. This facility, which will be introduced in stages once the new system is in place, will mean that all existing forms used to access OHS services will be located in one place and accessible online.

A demonstration system will be available at the Occupational Health Services stand at the UAS Conference next Tuesday (27 September). A representative of the IT supplier will also be on hand to answer any questions, together with OHS staff.

Detailed instructions on how to access the new system will be communicated in due course, while training will be delivered by OHS to regular users of the services. In the meantime, existing processes can continue to be used. 

If you have any questions or would like any further information, please email me at paul.morris@it.ox.ac.uk.

 

Regards,

Paul Morris
