IMPORTANT – PLEASE READ
Coronavirus (Covid-19) can make anyone seriously ill but for some people the risk is higher. Please be reassured that from the available medical evidence on Covid 19, neither an underlying health condition nor pregnancy increases your risk of acquiring Covid 19 infection. For certain health conditions Covid 19 infection may increase your relative risk of an adverse outcome in terms of the severity of Covid 19 infection.
In line with HSE guidance on Covid Risk Assessment, if you believe you are at higher risk from coronavirus, then you are invited to have your vulnerability assessed.
The assessment will involve obtaining a report from your treating specialist and uploading this to Medmark along with your Risk Assessment Questionnaire.
Before submitting your formal application for assessment to Medmark,
you may wish to avail of an online ‘Covid Age Toolkit’ – this is a short
online questionnaire which calculates vulnerability based on
chronological age, ethnicity, sex, along with underlying health
conditions known to increase the risk of serious illness following Covid
19 infection. This tool is not meant to act as the definitive
result/report but it can be used to provide you with an indication of
your level of risk.

If you believe that you are at higher risk from coronavirus, you are requested to:
- Download the “Medical Report from Treating Consultant” form and request your treating consultant complete this form.
The “Medical Report from Treating Consultant” form can be downloaded here »
- Complete the Covid Risk Assessment Questionnaire once you have
received the completed “Medical Report from Treating Consultant” form
from your consultant. Please note that it is not possible to submit the Covid Risk Assessment Questionnaire without attaching a medical report. If it is not possible to obtain a specialist report, we will accept a GP report or specialist reports held on file by your GP.
The Covid Risk Assessment Questionnaire can be accessed here »
Once we have received the completed application, you will be notified whether or not you are at higher risk from coronavirus. If you are in this category, a report will be issued to you which you will need to provide to your employer.
