Thursday 6th October 2022 saw the launch of our brand-new police occupational health network with an inaugural meeting taking place online.

What is the police occupational health practitioner network?

The police occupational health practitioner network is committed to improve the provision of occupational health in policing and improve the health of those who work in the police, with the wider business benefits of an enhanced service to the public.

The network aims to engage with all 43 forces of England and Wales, as well as our strategic partners, Occupational Health Nurse Advisors to the Police Service (OHNAPS) and the Association of Local Authority Medical Advisors (ALAMA), to communicate, inform, and influence occupational health teams and services across policing.

Every force will have membership, and this initial meeting was attended by occupational health practitioners from across the country, they discussed how and why the network had been formed, details about the vision and strategy and how the network will work going forward. It was also a fantastic opportunity for individuals to connect with fellow members.
