Our customer base has grown through word of mouth rather than direct advertising, here are a few testimonials from valued customers.

Askham Bryan College

KC Business Health has been the main Occupational Health provider for Askham Bryan College for over 8 years. This service has involved Karen Coomer advising the College on policy matters, often complex personal case issues and recommended reasonable adjustments in line with the Equality Act. Karen’s input is invaluable to people management processes within the College and the service provided is, in equal part, responsive, cost-effective and of very high quality. I should be happy, without hesitation, to recommend KC Business Health as a supplier of occupational health services.

Unipart Rail

I have known Karen for approximately 10 years. In one of my first roles as a HR Manager, I needed to find an Occupational Health specialist to provide expertise with quite a complex capability case. I have since employed the services of KC Business Health in the two Companies that I have subsequently worked for. I have been at Unipart Rail for nearly 5 years and Karen was one of the first introductions I made to the business which changed the way employees feel about what occupational health in the workplace is about. Karen is a true professional, providing a high quality, knowledgeable service to the business. Karen is excellent with our employees providing support, guidance and the utmost confidentiality and empathy whilst offering guidance to the HR and Management team on OH matters. On a personal note, I find her an absolute pleasure to work with as do members of my team. I would not hesitate in recommending Karen at KC Business Health for all occupational health requirements. Thank you for your continued partnership Karen.

The Personnel Partnership

I use KC Business Health on a regular basis. It’s great to be able to pick up the ‘phone about complex employee health issues and know that you will get practical, measured advice about the situation. I have referred Karen to a number of my clients who also use her on a regular basis to carry out pre-placement health assessments, medicals, ergonomic assessments and much more. I know that they find her caring yet commercial approach and advice invaluable. Karen is very highly recommended and I am delighted that she is part of my “inner circle” of HR related experts!

Helen Straw, Director, The Personnel Partnership

Ebor Academy Trust

I've worked with Karen over many years in different roles, which span both public and private sectors. Prior to using KCBH I used a number of occupational health providers. I can honestly say that Karen's quality of service shines out and makes her business quite exceptional; not only does she provide meaningful reports which facilitate sound business decisions, she manages to establish a positive rapport with the individuals she meets. I have referred many people to her and have never heard anyone say that their encounter was anything other than good and useful. In addition, Karen is flexible in her approach and goes to great lengths to meet with people quickly and turns reports around swiftly. She offers all of this at competitive prices and I am confident that we get excellent value for money. In short I cannot recommend this service highly enough

The At Work Partnership

Karen is a vastly experienced occupational health professional, with an immense understanding of the complexities of occupational health. Karen has worked with The At Work Partnership for many years, contributing expertly written articles to our journal “Occupational Health [at Work]” on subjects such as the Work Ability index, motivation at work, and research in OH, as well as delivering key lectures on new and innovative areas of OH practice. She has trained hundreds of OH practitioners in the application of the biopsychosocial model in OH case management as a key part of our Certificate in OH Case Management qualification. Her well planned and researched lectures, and her clear, practical approach, make her a very popular lecturer.
