Previa - occupational health service
If you are an employee or a scholarship-funded doctoral/post-doctoral student, you can turn to Previa in the event of any work-related health issue. By work-related, we mean that there must be a connection between your health and your ability to work, and to the demands at work.
Work-related issues include conditions that are directly caused by your work, are exacerbated by your work or are assumed to be connected to your work. Conditions such as influenza and other respiratory-tract infections are not considered to be work-related – in such cases, you should consult your own health centre. If you are uncertain about anything, you can call any of Previa’s units for advice.
All appointments must be booked in advance. If you have booked an appointment but are unable to attend, it must be cancelled at least 24 hours in advance – otherwise Previa will issue an invoice for the appointment. A certain emergency service is available for the treatment of needle sticks/other cuts where there is a risk of blood infection.
The agreement is a framework agreement; for more information about what is included in Sweden’s Legal, Financial and Administrative Services Chamber’s (Kammarkollegiet) framework agreements for occupational health service, visit www.avropa.se.
