Since 1987, the Health Service has operated a call center where nurses supervise the registration of sick leave and provide employees with corporate advice in the event of illness.

The aim of the service is to promote the health and well-being of employees and to give companies an overview of the sickness patterns of the workplace so that they can possibly respond to health-damaging conditions. Allegiance replaces traditional medical certificates and traditional confidential medical systems, but employees generally go to their family physician for treatment.

Employees always have access to the Health Protection Personnel for advice during telephone hours, even if there is no absence of illness.

  • Remote sensing: Nurses' telephone hours at. 8: 30-15: 30 every weekday.
