Managing your wellbeing with our occupational health services

Occupational health aims to promote and maintain the health and wellbeing of employees. Here at Basuto Medical Centre, our end goal is to ensure there’s a positive and healthy relationship between an employee’s work and their health. Managing the health and wellbeing of people at work and having access to occupational health practitioners is key to unlocking these benefits.

An occupational health provider can help you in a number of ways including:

  • Pre-employment medicals

  • Insurance medicals

  • Medical reports

  • Racing licence medicals


Employment medicals are usually carried out for patients who are travelling overseas for employment purposes.  Your employer/prospective employer will give you some forms that we will need to complete so please bring these along to your appointment with your occupational health provider. Examinations will be performed as required and you will be given a copy for your records. We can get you up to date with required vaccinations and give you a certificate to show you are covered.


These are typically required when you’re taking out a financial product such as mortgage. The forms are usually sent to us from your insurance company because you will have listed us as your GP. We will complete them with you or if we have sufficient information on our records, we can sometimes do this without the need for you to be present.


Doctors are frequently asked to provide information about their patients. These requests come from a variety of sources. For example, employers, government agencies and regulatory bodies. In the UK, GPs receive the most requests as they hold the most comprehensive records.

Information may need to be provided in the form of a report, a certificate, a statement or a letter.


The patient usually provides along the appropriate documentation and we will perform the medical examination and complete the form. We will keep a copy but sign and stamp your form so that you can apply for your racing driver’s licence.
