The SEQOHS accreditation scheme awards a badge of quality to occupational health and occupational health physiotherapy services that have demonstrated they have met the SEQOHS standards.
How can I find out if the occupational health service I use is accredited by SEQOHS?
A searchable list of occupational health and occupational health physiotherapy services that have achieved SEQOHS accreditation can be found here. To find your nearest accredited service, you can search by postcode using the bar at the top of the page.
A list of services working towards SEQOHS accreditation (services that have registered with SEQOHS and have not yet demonstrated they have met the standards) can be found here.
How do the SEQOHS standards relate to workers and employees?
Domain F (page 13) of the SEQOHS standards focuses on an occupational health service's relationship with its workers. The six standards within this domain cover two key areas: the OH service must ensure workers are treated fairly and in line with professional standards, and the OH service must respect and involve workers.
What should I do if I have a complaint about my accredited OH service?
Please be advised that SEQOHS can only look into any issues relating directly to the SEQOHS standards. Any negative feedback will be taken into account and investigated as appropriate to ensure compliance with the standards is maintained.
If you wish to make a complaint about a particular service, you should request and follow their own complaints procedure. If you are not satisfied by the response received, you are then advised to approach the health ombudsman if your complaint relates to an NHS service, or the relevant professional body (eg NMC or FOM) if it relates to an individual clinician.
