NHS Plus

A project which supports the UK Government's goal of improving the quality and delivery of health and work services and supports the broader Health, Work and Wellbeing Strategy through:
• Helping develop the NHS as a model employer;
• Delivering services to other public sector bodies and smaller businesses;
• Supporting the development of quality occupational health practices.

NHS Plus works alongside the NHS Health at Work Network, which aims to deliver the highest quality health and well-being services to NHS staff. NHS Plus is deployed by a network of NHS occupational health departments across England, serving non-NHS employers and  supporting industry, commerce, and the public sector.
