Frequently Asked Questions

If you cannot find the information you want in our service pages, you may be able to find it on this main FAQ page.
After looking at the statistics of how users browse our site we have now focused on the most used services as priority, many hundreds of information pages on our site that were accessed rarely or sometimes not at all have now been removed to de-clutter and make our site easier to use.

However we still accept that some information is desirable to help our users better understand aspects of how Carlisle City Council services work, so we provide FAQ lists on most our section landing pages.
All FAQs including any FAQ that does not fit in any of our our site sections are accessible here in the master FAQ page.

Occupational health services

Employees are a key business asset and essential to productivity and profitability. Occupational health teams keep people well at work – physically and mentally. Every year over 170 million days are lost to sickness absence. The Government’s Black Review of the health of the working age population reported the cost to the economy is estimated to be £100bn each year.

NHS Health at Work offers support to industry, commerce, and the public sector, with a focus on small and medium sized enterprises (SMEs).Occupational health teams can develop a range of services designed specifically to meet the needs of your business. They can:

  • Reduce sickness absence
  • Prevent and remove health risks arising in the workplace - ensuring your business meets its statutory responsibilities - and helping your business maintain a healthy workforce.
  • Provide screening and surveillance services when early stages of ill health arise. We will work with you to develop solutions to keep employees with health issues at work.
  • Give independent and professional diagnosis, prognosis and advice on staff unable to work due to long-term or short-term intermittent health problems.
  • Lifestyle and wellbeing services increasing productivity and staff retention.
