Our Expertise

We have an extensive employed team of over 320 occupational health practitioners in the UK: Consultant Physicians, Occupational Health Nurses, Occupational Therapists, Physiotherapists, Counsellors, Psychologists, Technicians, Registered Nurses and Physiologists.

We work across a range of sectors, both public and private. Within the private sector we specialise in the energy and utilities, construction, manufacturing, rail, transport and financial sectors. We also provide services to Blue Light organisations and are one of the largest providers to the NHS, central and local government.

We know that one size doesn’t fit all. So our preference is to work with organisations to understand their requirements. This way we can create integrated, compelling and multidisciplinary solutions where, together, we focus on the outcomes and on measuring value with return on investment for the organisation.
