Ministry of Defence to switch occupational health providers

The Ministry of Defence (MoD) is to change its occupational health provider.

On 1 September 2008, Atos Healthcare will replace Capita Health Solutions as provider of the MoD’s occupational health scheme. It will initially supply the service for five years, with the option to then extend the contract for a further two years. 

The occupational health advice and support service forms part of the MOD’s people programme and is aimed at further reducing sickness absence.
