Letter from the Chair

I would like to take this opportunity to wish you a very Happy New Year and update you on the work of the Health and Social Care Group and our plans for 2019/20. I am currently the Chair of the Group's Management Committee, the team on this committee represents the whole sector including all aspects of Health and Social Care. We have representation from NHS, HSE, Independent Healthcare and Social Care organisations.

There are also regional section groups that link into our Committee who meet regularly to discuss best practice within our sector. These groups are in Scotland, North West, Midlands, Wales, South West and Ireland.

As part of the Health and Social Care Groups work, we provide 3 networking events for members to support CPD each year. Additionally we organise webinar sessions on current and relevant topics that you may find useful. For information on these events and what is planned over the next year , take a look at our events page.

We are always looking to expand the committee with members joining us, if you are interested in volunteering as committee member then please click here.

For regular updates on our activities, events and articles join our LinkedIn or Twitter pages.

I look forward to hopefully seeing you at our future events and your support in promoting Health and Safety for our profession.

With warm regards,
Darren McDonald
Chair- IOSH Health and Social Care Group
