Absens' absence monitoring can also be included in an existing Company Health medical plan.

Employees should call the absens health number as soon as they know they are going to be absent from work. They must also call this number if they have had an accident at work which resulted in an injury.
All medical information involved in this absence monitoring programme is protected under the Data Protection Act.
Nurses may telephone the employee during absence to ensure good advice and treatment is being provided and to update the employer regarding the plan to return to work.
It may be necessary for the employee to see an Occupational Health Physician prior to their return, to ensure no changes are to be made to the workplace or job design.
