Leeds Occupational Health Advisory Service (Leeds OHAS) was formed in 1992 when it was known as Leeds Occupational Health Project.
Our main work setting is in primary care working directly with GP practices. To date we have worked in more than 70 GP practices providing advice and support to more than 15,000 patients.
Occupational health advisors work in surgeries where they take patient referrals from GPs and other health professionals. These patients are provided with advice and support relating to their work related ill health problem.
Leeds OHAS holds a database of more than 11,000 anonymised patient records which we believe is the most comprehensive record of the incidence of work related ill health in the UK.
Leeds OHAS receives funding from the Leeds City Council and Leeds PCT.
