The Contract does not guarantee any particular level of service demand, because that depends on the operational needs, but historic service levels are provided in the tender documentation.
Most of the work within the contract has related to pre-employment health evaluation and referrals of employees for a medically-informed opinion: there has also been some involvement in relation to health surveillance, vaccination and other areas.
