Occupational health appointment - pre-employment screening

(8 Posts)

I have a occupational health appointment for a new job I have.

I have had bouts of axiety in the past and put this down on my written pre-screening form, but also have issues I didn't put down as wasn't sure what was best . I've never had one of these appointments before and should I err on telling them more or less?

Depends what the "issues" are really, can you elaborate?

Well I hve been diagnosed with depression but don't think I have it, and an eating disorder (long-term thing)

Be truthful in the discussion.and congratulations on getting must be chuffed
I imagine they'll ask the impact of the conditions upon you,any time off etc
.and remember plenty people attend OH for issues

I'm just worried that it'll affect anything in work and that I may be pre-judged hence why I'd rather they do't know

Thanks for the advice

be truthful,if you aren't and something later come to light it will be problematic
You've clearly passed interview,been selected,had appropriate references
congratulations on new job
