Occupational Health and Wellbeing
Introducing the Occupational Health and Wellbeing Service
Our nationally accredited Occupational Health & Wellbeing Service is committed to providing confidential, professional and high quality care, to support and advise on the physical, mental and emotional wellbeing of all its clients.
Many employers are unaware of the functions of an Occupational Health Service. We act as independent advisers to both the employer and the employee on all aspects of work that affects health, and health that affects work. This can help to improve the health and wellbeing of your existing workforce and/or any new recruits to your organisation.
The Occupational Health and Wellbeing Service provides highly experienced, qualified professionals to assist and guide you in managing occupational health and safety risks in a proportionate way, giving sensible advice and finding practical cost effective solutions to help improve your business performance.
We believe that employees are the most valuable resource of any organisation, therefore investing in the health and wellbeing of all employees is of paramount importance.
The Occupational and Wellbeing Service enjoys the benefit of a Consultant led service and an impressive Occupational Health Team, consisting of Occupational Health Physicians, Specialist Occupational Health Practitioners, Screening Nurses, a Physiotherapist, a Business and Administration Manager, and Health and Wellbeing Advisor and administrative support staff. We have well established close link with the counselling service and the Trust’s Health and Safety Team.
The service is pleasantly situated in the Courtyard Garden on the main Sandwell General Hospital site, close to many local amenities in the heart of the Black Country in the West Midlands.

Health and Well Being Services
The SWBH staff Health and Wellbeing agenda has had notable success in recent years with excellent feedback from staff, from partner organisations and national organisations. However two distinct strands of work have emerged which have given rise to a new strategy for 2015. This aims to use all of the health promotion work and resources available throughout the Trust with combined working, while maintaining a needs based approach and continuing to support the wider Workforce agenda, particularly attendance management and work related ill health.
