We have used the services of Family Doctors’ at Smales since 2011. They have provided us with pre-employment screening for our clinical staff as well as on-site Flu vaccinations. Having the vaccinations on site makes it easier for our staff to participate in the annual vaccination programme.

The doctors have also provided us with an in depth occupational health assessment where privacy of the individual was fully respected and the employee made a safe and early return to work.
