Safety Talks… Return to work for healthcare workers

The Safety for All campaign has launched a new podcast series; Safety Talks – A Safety For All podcast.

Safety Talks is a new series of podcasts produced and released under the Safety For All banner, hosted by Dr Paul Grime, Chairman of the Safer Healthcare Biosafety Network for over 20 years.

The first episode is now live: Safety Talks… Return to work for healthcare workers

The episode gives listeners the chance to hear from Dr Shriti Pattani, an accredited specialist in Occupational health working for London North West University Hospitals NHS Trust as their Clinical Director. Shriti also works as a GP and was recently awarded an OBE for her outstanding work in occupational health. Shriti’s work in the area of Health and Work has led to her working with Public Health England as a Health and Work Medical Champion. Her particular interests include the mental health of doctors, education of GPs and other physicians on the importance of work on health and how best to use the ‘fit note’ and opportunities for fast tracking NHS staff to promote their health and wellbeing.

There will be further episodes released in the coming months on a range of patient and healthcare worker safety topics and will be available on Spotify. Follow us on X @_SHBN_ for regular Safety Talks updates.
