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.

Our aims

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.

Our vision

Network strategic aims

  1. Act as the voice of occupational health professionals who work in policing to communicate, inform, and influence national developments.
  2. Exchange information and knowledge across the network for the purpose of developing the quality of police occupational health services and the development of best practice.
  3. Share specialist knowledge between the network's professional groups to help inform the National Police Wellbeing Service (NPWS) and its strategic aims.
