Welcome from our Chair – Christina Butterworth
Welcome to the Faculty of Occupational Health Nursing (FOHN) website where we aim to educate, inform and promote occupational health nursing.
FOHN is now a Community Interest Company. A not-for-profit organisation conducting activities to promote and strengthen the the art and science of occupational health (OH).
I am fortunate to lead a dynamic and highly experienced Board of Directors whose function is
promote public and professional awareness, evidence based good practice and standards of health and wellbeing at work
as a professional body raise the profile of and be an authoritative voice for OH delivery for the benefit of the working age population
We continue to represent occupational health nurses at a local, regional and national level. Proud of the difference that OH nurses can make to individuals, organisations and the profession, enabling a sustainable development in this field of practice. We take an active role in several professional networks and fora, campaigning for decision-makers to recognise and engage with the profession.
Each year we assess the needs of the profession and develop new frameworks and guidance in consultation with occupational health practitioners and are always pleased to get views, opinions and support for this work.
Our main focus remains the needs for greater leadership and the delivery of quality occupational health nursing.
