Occupational health services for the University of Cumbria are carried out by Industrial Diagnostics Company Limited. This means that the University of Cumbria will share your contact details with that provider and in return the provider will share information about your clearance status e.g. cleared or not cleared.
Where appropriate your healthcare details may be shared with your academic team. Data will be shared securely and will not be shared with any other organisation.
All students on healthcare, education, sports and youth work courses are required to pass a health clearance questionnaire and all healthcare applicants are required to take part in a health assessment interview. Click for more information and download the medical questionnaire form.
Once you have submitted your occupational health declaration form there is no need to contact the occupational health service. Our admissions office will be informed of your clearance. If occupational health has any concerns they will contact you directly for further information.
If the completion of a medical is a condition of your offer, you will be required to undertake a health assessment. This will be via an on-line platform provided by our appointed Occupational Health provider, Industrial Diagnostics Company Limited.
Please read the medical clearance page in full to understand the process for your course https://www.cumbria.ac.uk/applicants/offers/medical-checks/. There is a handy presentation on the page that explains the process in full.
