dc.description.abstract<b>Background</b> An increasingly high standard of ethical practice is expected of all doctors and in particular those not providing treatment services. <b>Aims</b> This case–control study investigated the effect on non‐attendance rates for first sickness absence appointments of a new employee information sheet sent to staff from the two largest departments, education and social services, of a large UK local authority. <b>Method</b> An information sheet detailing the ethical standards applying to a local authority occupational health service was developed and sent to all employees referred by their managers as part of the sickness absence management procedures, along with details of their appointment. <b>Results</b> A reduction of ∼1/3 in the rate of non‐attendance was noted in the intervention group, which was statistically significant for social services referrals. <b>Conclusion</b> This approach may improve the efficiency and effectiveness of occupational health services, as well as helping to achieve the informed consent of employees undergoing occupational health assessment.
