In order to obtain as accurate a measure of the numerator as possible, and to recruit and retain motivated GPs, this project is using cohorts of GPs already trained at a postgraduate level in Occupational Medicine by the Centre for Occupational and Environmental Health at the University of Manchester.
Participating GPs are requested to return specific information on new cases of occupational ill-health that they see in their clinical practice, and on related sickness absence. Data is collected on symptoms or diagnosis, occupation, industry and the likely causative agent.
