Pre-employment medical questionnaire form template

£ 15

This questionnaire collects specific job-related information about a post, and relevant health information about the new starter. This information can then be assessed by OHS advisers or other qualified personnel, who can: 

  1. Assess the candidate's medical capability to do the job for which they have applied: this will include assessing whether there are any statutory and legal reasons why an individual may not carry out particular work: for example, health and safety regulations would mean that a candidate with epilepsy would not be allowed to undertake a post involving driving; and
  2. Provide advice to departments to ensure that none of the role's duties will adversely affect any pre-existing health conditions the candidate has declared.

What is this form for?

The purpose of this Pre-employment medical questionnaire form template is to provide you with a flexible and customisable document to serve as a robust and effective starting point for you.

By using our Pre-employment medical questionnaire form template, you can streamline your process, maintain consistency and accuracy, and save time, and it can be easily adapted to fit your specific scenario.
