Coal Board Medical and Health Scheme Assessments
Eclipse Medical is able to perform Coal Board Medicals or Coal Mine Workers’ Health Scheme Assessments (interim and full).
A requirement of the Queensland Coal Board is for an employee to undergo a Coal Mine Workers’ Health Scheme Assessment prior to starting employment or attending a mine site. These medicals are required to be performed by a nominated medical advisor.
Dr Glen Mulhall is a Nominated Medical Advisor to the Coal Worker’s health assessment scheme and can perform and sign off your medical. In partnership with Sunshine Coast Radiology who performs chest xrays to ILO standards we can facilitate all of these requirements.
Things you need to know:
After you have booked an appointment with HealthWorx at Eclipse Medical, Maroochydore, please ensure that you arrive at least half an hour prior to your appointment. This is important to ensure that you have sufficient time to complete all the requirements of your medical assessment and that you are able to fill out all of the forms that may be required.
Please bring along any documentation from your employer, all of your current medication(s), tests, X rays or scans that you may have had in the past and if you wear them, bring your glasses.
You will be required to pay for your medical on the day or your employer will arrange payment and then your documentation will be released to you and your employer
Please note: all coal mine workers in Queensland must have a Coal Mine Workers Health Assessment completed on the approved form prior to working in a Queensland coal mine and thereafter at least once every 5 years. Come to the experts – where the focus is you!
