Where this is the case, Handsworth Wood Medical Services Ltd is ideally placed, having its own X-ray facility on site, thus reducing the time employees are away from the job. There is also a requirement that any potential employee has been assessed by a doctor for his fitness and suitability for the wearing of the necessary Personal Protective Equipment.


Workers exposed to lead are required to have their lead levels checked by means of a blood or urine test. The interval of these tests is dependent on the blood levels recorded, thus if the level rises the test will need to be carried out more frequently. These tests can be carried out at the surgery or if several employees are involved a company visit can be arranged.

Ionising Radiation

Workers employed in or to work with ionising radiation are required to be approved before employment in these areas by an assessment from a doctor. Thereafter they must have an annual medical to assess their continuing suitability for working in such environments.
