Occupational Medicine Consultant, Dr Anne de Bono has been recognised in the Queen’s Jubilee Honours for her services to healthcare.
Anne has been part of UHL for many years and has been instrumental in the development and delivery of our Occupational Health Service.
Occupational medicine, is a clinical specialty which evaluates the two-way relationship between health and work and is key in supporting the health and wellbeing of NHS Staff, particularly as it emerges from the height of the pandemic.
The UHL Occupational Health service helps to support the 17,000 NHS staff that work across the Trust to stay healthy as they fulfil their role in the hospital.
In her own words, whilst we may no longer talk often about the effect on miners’ lungs: “work-related ill health still exists in the UK, and should not be forgotten, nor the importance of good work for good health!”
Anne’s work is widely regarded as an exemplar in the field and in 2017 she was elected President of the Faculty of Occupational Medicine
