Occupational Health

Since the University of Cambridge implemented its Coronavirus contingency plan in March 2020, the Occupational Health Service (OHS) has been operating with personnel working remotely from home and this will continue for the foreseeable future.  As a result we currently have limited access to our database/appointment system and records and are unable to offer routine face-to-face appointments.  Once we know when we are able to resume face-to-face appointments again, we will make plans to reschedule any missed appointments.

As of week beginning 01 June 2020, as some University staff begin the process of returning to the workplace, the OHS will have a reduced number of personnel working within the department on a Tuesday and Friday each week.  Having access to the department will enable us to allocate appointments that are necessary for staff / students who require occupational vaccinations / blood tests as part of any ‘health clearance’ required for work. We will however continue to offer advice and management / self-referral appointments via telephone consultations until such times as we can resume  routine clinic appointments again.  

If you have an enquiry for Occupational Health, we would encourage contact to be made via email correspondence, which should be sent to OccHealth@admin.cam.ac.uk .  This inbox is monitored on a regular basis during our office hours Monday - Friday 0830-1630.  Please be aware there may be a delay in responding to you.
