It is not statutory duty to include a medical check on your single central record, but it is your statutory duty to carry out this check.
According to the guidance, it is your duty to “verify the candidate’s mental and physical fitness to carry out their work responsibilities”.
This allows you to ask relevant questions about disability and health, in order to establish whether the applicant has the physical and/or mental capacity to satisfy the specific role.
The primary purpose of health assessment fitness for work is to make sure that an individual is fit to perform the tasks involved effectively and without risk to their own or others’ health and safety.
It is not the intention to exclude a person from a job but to make any necessary reasonable modifications or adjustments to the job to allow the person to work efficiently and safely.
Should you choose to store this information according to your best practice policies, SCR Tracker has a separate section for storing medical check information.
As with all of SCR Tracker’s in-built checks, you are able to turn this off in the Template Editor, if you deem it best not to record on your single central record.
