The Government’s chief nurse Sarah Mullally has called for OH nurses to take
an active role in the developing public health agenda.
"Occupational health nurses need a vision of how to work in new ways
and to recognise changes in work in society," she told OH managers at a
launch of guidance on audit.
"OH nurses are critical to the Government’s work on public
health," she added. "I would look to them to take a lead in assessing
what is needed in the workplace."
A second discussion forum on the Government’s public health policy strategy
