Dealing with Doctors

Even if your employer provides good workplace occupational health services, your own GP is your primary source of independent health care advice.

Further Information

Keeping well at work is available from the TUC online bookshop, priced £9.99.

There is plenty of health in the workplace advice on the TUC website and on the Live Well pages of the NHS Choices website.
