Welcome our new President – Sandra Winters
“I am delighted to have been invited to join the FOHN as their president for 2021. My OH career has been varied, undertaking both clinical and managerial roles within a range of public and private sector organisations – I was one of the first nurses to be appointed as a nurse consultant in OH, and took the lead role on workplace health for NHS England. In 2014 Organisational Wellbeing Ltd. was incorporated and since this time I have worked independently – providing OH consultancy services. Expanding the role, remit, and potential reach of OH into organisations has not been without challenge but as a professional group we face constant organisational change and expectation of our input and value. It is this area particularly that I hope to drive interest– developing our ‘brand’ and our unique selling point. The FOHN aims to guide all members toward new and exciting development opportunities that will enable leadership that can drive and create the USP required for the future OHN role.I look forward to hearing from you, your ideas and innovations and in collaborating within the vast allied networks that are involved within our professional nursing network.”
