Welcome to Occupational Health

Posted on Updated on

There has never been a better time to become an Occupational Health practitioner.  The Council for Work and Health have published a report outlining the shortage of Occupational Health specialists.  Read more here.  As an independent Specialist Practitioner and a Director of the AOHNP , I look forward to welcoming and supporting nurses and technicians joining our team.

If you are new to OH,

  • look out for the professional development programme that I am developing for the NHS NPAG which will start again in September 2016;
  • please consider joining the AOHNP as a student or associate member to develop your skills and your career.

Hot off the press:

I am so excited to have been invited to work with NPAG, to develop new training and development modules for their OH programme.  I have so many ideas, I don’t know where to begin!

Immediate ideas (on top of the existing programme) are:

  • Health surveillance – philosophy and practice 
  • Fitness for work
  • Performance management
  • Clinical governance and audit

If your organisation has a training requirement not covered by the current programme, NPAG would like to hear from you – we thrive on developing new ideas with our clients.  We can assist in delivering a product that is suited to your needs and requirements. Our involvement can be decided by you. Our team has a wealth of experience designing courses, workshops and seminars for clients.

Contact NPAG today and find out how we can help you.
