The National School of Occupational Health is a collaboration between HEE and the Faculty of Occupational Medicine.
The proposed model for the School builds on the previous London and Kent, Surrey and Sussex School of Occupational Medicine model with close working relationships between the local team hosting the School of Occupational Medicine in North West London and the Faculty of Occupational Medicine.
The purpose of the school is to quality manage the provision of training in occupational medicine in England in order to ensure and assure delivery of the national curriculum for occupational medicine. The vision of the school is one of world class education and training in occupational medicine and occupational health to sustain and develop an occupational health workforce for the benefit of working people.
There is a single national recruitment process for England, with Wales also participating. Scotland, Northern Ireland and the defence deanery will continue to run their own separate systems.
Health Education England (HEE) and the Faculty of Occupational Medicine are collaborating to establish a new National School of Occupational Health. This ground-breaking initiative will support the national agenda for promoting health and wellbeing in the workplace. The school will promote and develop multi-professional training of occupational health practitioners.
