This remains controversial amongst some. The OHP is suitably qualified to do most medicals. Where the medical is governed by legislation e.g. a PDP and where future challenges of results and opinions/adjudication could be met by legal argument the OHP must be comfortable to stand by her credentials, experience,training and findings especially when matched against a medical professional.
