New! Optima offers Pay as you Use Member Service to assist with Occupational Health support

Optima has launched a Pay as you Use Member service to assist with Occupational Health support.  You do not need to be part of our Employee Assistance Programme which is now available for both employees and councillors. 

To help you fulfil your health and safety duties as an employer, Optima Health, now offers a pay as use Occupational Health service who also offer the annual Employee Assistance Programme. The service can be used to carry out:

  • Assessments and physiotherapy services

This is a ‘pay as use’ service with no annual charge, no joining, on-boarding or exit charges.  Indicative prices for services are below
