Published: 24 October 2019
We are pleased to announce our Occupational Health Team has been awarded the SEQHS accreditation.
SEQOHS (Safe Effective Quality Occupational Health) is a professionally-led accreditation managed by the Faculty of Occupational Medicine, the professional and educational body for occupational medicine in the UK. It is based on a set of standards for occupational health services in the UK and beyond.
To become accredited, Occupational health services must demonstrate their adherence to the SEQOHS standards before they are accredited. These are categorised into six domains:
A: Business probity
B: Information Governance
D: Facilities and Equipment
E: Relationships with Purchasers
F: Relationships with Workers

Helen Mumby, Occupational Health Manager and her team demonstrated their department should be we awarded the SEQHS accreditation by submitting clear evidence they met the criteria. This was a difficult process as all evidence was scrutinised before the visit. On the day the SEQOHS ask for more information and evidence to support what the team said they do.
We would like to thank Helen and her team for the excellent service they deliver to patients and staff on a daily base which has resulted in them being awarded the SEQOHS accreditation.
