Will I be drug tested in occupational health check for Health care assistant job?
I have recently been offered a job as a health care assistant and it is subject to an occupational health check. I gather there will be a blood test but will they be checking for things such as recreational drugs. There is a question asking if you have used them, should you be honest or will you not get the job if found to have taken them?
