  • Advise you on any occupational health reports
  • Help you to interpret the relevant medical evidence
  • Advise you on the implementation of reasonable adjustments
  • Draft or check the documents you need to support the process, including emails, letters, scripts, guidance notes and investigation questions
  • Advise you on how and what to collate in evidence and when to use it
