How We Can Help You

At Blythswood Health & Wellbeing we offer a wide range of medicals and services which can be tailor-made to meet your requirements.

Offshore Medicals

We offer services to help you meet a range of specific OGUK and RUK medical requirements – from basic certification to more specialised fitness tests, e.g. ERT medicals, Drug and Alcohol Screening etc. OGUK sets a standard of fitness to be reached by anyone working in the offshore or renewable energy industry. That standard applies to the UK but is being progressively recognised as a worldwide indicator of health and fitness for anyone working in the oil and gas industry.

RUK Medicals

We provide industry recommended wind turbine medicals for the renewable energy sector, also known as RUK medicals. The RUK medical has been developed because neither the MCA or OGUK medical certification structures were designed to reflect the specific risks that are particular to the renewable energy sector.

Occupational Health

Your staff are your most valuable asset. Their health and welfare are of utmost importance. Good occupational health services will bring you and your company a range of important benefits. Our occupational health services can help you reducing absence, reduce stress, meet your legal requirements and reduce the possibility of legal action against you and showing your workforce that you are a caring employer, which can help to improve motivation and goodwill. Whether it is for pre-employment, fitness to work, management referral or health surveillance we will be able to accommodate your requirements.

Psychology Services

Stress, anxiety and depression are major contributors to absenteeism in the modern workplace and can affect normal daily activities to the individual. Blythswood Health & Wellbeing Ltd can provide various types of assistance to employers, employees and individuals when it comes to undertaking these very real and prevalent issues. This assistance can take many forms but includes, but is not limited to counselling, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) and emotional wellbeing.

We are able to offer Practising Rights to Practitioners to allow them to work under the new Independent Clinic Regulations.

Chartered Physiotherapy

The human body is a remarkable thing and is capable of achieving great things. However, there are times where bones, joints, ligaments, tendon, nerves and muscles become damaged and can prevent us carrying out high levels of activity. In the worst case scenarios, they can even prevent basic tasks and movement that we take for granted causing high levels of pain. Physiotherapy aims at assessing the bodies’ injury through a full subjective and objective assessment and aims at treating the condition and provides the patient with the ability to get back to their previous levels of ability.

Podiatry

Biomechanics is the science involved with the internal and external forces acting on the human body and the effects produced by these forces. It is about the way your body moves. In particular, for podiatrists, biomechanics is about how the movements of your lower limbs and feet affect the rest of you. It is important that your feet are in good working order, otherwise you may feel aches and pains in other areas of your body – such as your knees, hips and back, as well as in your feet. A biomechanical assessment may identify the root cause of injury or poor performance e.g. pain in the foot, feeling unstable when standing, unexplained corns and callous or injuring a particular area.

Private Medical Services

Are you struggling to get an appointment with you GP? We are able to meet your independent health care needs in a professional and relaxed environment. We offer a broad range of conventional and complementary medical services, including private prescriptions, private referrals, blood tests, well person screening, exercise tolerance testing (Stress Test), mini medical and a comprehensive travel clinic.

Travel Medicine

The results of illness or disease while abroad can be high for the employee, employer and individual and can involve costs of treatment, legal costs, sick pay and increased insurance premiums etc… We offer a wide range of travel services including immunisations and vaccinations, pre and post travel screening and information about specific locations. We also carry out TB screening. We are also a designated Yellow Fever Centre.

Drug and alcohol Screening

Not only are drug and alcohol-related problems accountable for millions of lost work days per year, they are also involved in a high percentage of all fatal work-related accidents.
Drugs and alcohol testing in the workplace can be a daunting prospect for any business. Employers are violating the law if they are aware of drink and/or drug-related activities in the workplace and fail to act. They also have a duty of care to protect staff from the mistakes of other employees acting under the influence of drugs and/or alcohol.

Sports Injury Clinic

You don’t have to be sporty to benefit from Sports Therapy treatment. Playing sport and doing regular exercise is good for your health, but can sometimes result in injuries. Sports injuries can be caused by an accident, not warming up correctly before exercising, using unsuitable equipment, poor technique or pushing yourself too hard. Almost any part of the body can be injured, including the muscles, bones, joints and connective tissues (tendons and ligaments). The ankles and knees are some of the most commonly affected areas.

Medicolegal services

BHW are pleased to offer a wide range of Medicolegal Experts of varying disciplines. We currently can offer General Practitioner, Consultant Orthopaedic and Psychologist reports. We also have our in-house Chartered Physiotherapists and Podiatrist for rehabilitation purposes.
