Posted By Francis Quinn Can my colleagues please advise me. RIDDOR seems quite clear- one must report a case of a notifiable disease "WHEN A DOCTOR NOTIFIES YOU IN WRITING"- my questions are- 1) Define a doctor- ie does this include a GP (especially when an Occupational Physician gives an opposite view)? 2) Does the "advise" of an Occupational Health Nurse fall into the reportable category? The reason I ask is that moving to an Occupational Health Nurse is threatening to swamp us with cases to report. My thanks to all in advance

Posted By Ken Taylor The Regulations refer to the written statement being made by a 'registered medical practitioner'. If the paper you receive clearly meets these criteria it would seem prudent to report to the enforcing authority.
