The National Health Service in the United Kingdom employs    approximately one million    workers.

Occupational Health provision to NHS staff is an important contribution to the effectiveness of the health service and to the PUBLIC HEALTH of the nation.

There are now many strategic policy initiatives for the NHS that include occupational health.

In the UK
the National Health Service has launched an important new initiative called NHS Plus. This will extend the provision of occupational health to SMEs from the NHS.

ANHOPS is an association of occupational physicians working in the NHS. This active organisation holds a number of scientific meetings, each year, and produces guidance on a range of issues.

There is now a dedicated
ANHOPS web site.
