Contracts a shot in the arm for business ; Workplace health [Bristol Evening Post (England)]

(Bristol Evening Post (England) Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) ? A BUSINESS started to help improve health in the workplace is proving its own fitness after winning two new contracts.

Work Doctors was set up as an occupational health business by a group of local GPs earlier this year.

It has been appointed by cheese company Lye Cross Farm in Redhill and city centre-based IOP Publishing to provide expert help and advice on employee health needs.

It will offer the 300 staff at IOP Publishing a medical referral and consultation service and an annual flu jab.

Peter Alivis, from Lye Cross, said: "Our partnership with Work Doctors ensures that we have access to independent, expert health advice to ensure our employees are fit and healthy to meet the rigorous requirements of a modern food business.

"We have been impressed with their understanding of the very specific needs of our business and their speed in responding to our needs." Dr Mark O'Connor, pictured above, managing director at Work Doctors, which is based in Long Ashton, said: "Access to up-to-date occupational health advice from a team that understands the pressures facing businesses in today's fast paced economic environment can be a real contributor to success.

"It's great to see so many businesses in the South West addressing their occupational health needs and we are delighted to have been appointed to help." (c) 2014 ProQuest Information and Learning Company; All Rights Reserved.
