Employee absenteeism is a severe issue in many organisations throughout Ireland, with millions of euro lost every year through reductions in productivity owing to illnesses. It is inevitable that staff will need to take sick leave sporadically, but looking after the health of employees is to everyone’s benefit. Therefore, providing a safe and healthy working environment is essential to optimise productivity and staff morale.

Union Quay Medical Centre is Cork’s most comprehensive occupational health service, with our office conveniently located at Union Quay in Cork city.
