Currently our occupational health service is outsourced to a specialist provider. We have contacted that provider and they have confirmed that they are currently going through the accreditation process, with a view to achieving accreditation within the timeframes indicated.In the unlikely event that they do not receive this accreditaion we will conduct a review with the provider to establish the reasons for this and will take appropriate action on the back of our findings. Clearly we cannot anticipate exactly what we would do, but we would not rule out seeking an alternative accredited supplier.It is likely that the provision of our occupational health service will shortly go out to tender and one of the criteria laid down for supplier consideration will be accreditation under SEQOHS standards or working towards the same.
