Membership

The Network is now well established as the voice of NHS occupational health services and is seen as to ‘go-to’ organisation for comment on NHS OH matters.  We have developed good working relationships with key organisations such as NHS England, Public Health England, SEQOHS, NHS Employers, FOM, SOM, the Council for Work and Health, the National School of OH and the Faculty of OH Nursing.  

The aim is for everyone working in occupational health in the NHS to be involved in the Network so that we can represent your views and you can have access to the wide range of benefits it provides.

Members are represented by an elected regional representative on the Network Board. For more information about our Constitution and governance arrangements see 'How we operate'.
