We are experienced in working within heavily unionised industrial relations environments, and have an unparalleled understanding of both the Local Government Pension Scheme and the Principal Civil Service Pension Scheme.

We can design and propose occupational health services which accommodate a range of budgets and which focus on the key organisational priorities of the public authority, to support staff health, safety and wellbeing. 

Health Management has a strong commitment to delivering social value. We offer a variety of value-adding activities in local communities, including creating new job opportunities, apprenticeships and supporting local community and green projects.
