Medigold Health are pleased to announce that we are now corporate supporters of The Society Of Occupational Medicine.
The Society of Occupational Medicine is the UK organisation for all healthcare professionals working in or, with an interest in, occupational health.
The Society stimulates interest and research in occupational medicine and works with the government, the healthcare community, health charities and other bodies to promote a healthier workforce. It also acts as the voice of occupational medicine, responding to consultative documents and media enquiries on issues affecting the speciality.
A national leader in providing continued professional development and education for all doctors and healthcare professionals working in occupational health, it is also a forum for the exchange of ideas, best practice and networking opportunities.
A registered charity, founded in 1935 as the Association of Industrial Medical Officers, it changed its name to become the Society of Occupational Medicine in 1965. In 2012, the Society opened its membership to health professionals working in occupational health.
Our Life President & Founder, Dr Mike Goldsmith, attended a roundtable event hosted by the SOM with the DWP/DH Work and Health unit on the 20th July to discuss the state of the occupational health industry.
Dr Goldsmith said “I feel extremely privileged to have been part of a group of senior industry professionals who were able to have a helpful discussion with the members of the Work and Health Unit; Stimulating session.”
