SEQOHS relocates to Greenwich
Since the launch of the SEQOHS Accreditation Scheme in 2010, the RCP has successfully delivered and developed the Scheme on behalf of the Faculty of Occupational Medicine, with both organisations working in partnership to raise standards. The FOM is a faculty of the RCP, so a close relationship continues between both organisations. However, from 1st July 2019 the running of SEQOHS will no longer be outsourced to the RCP but will be brought in-house to the FOM’s new premises in Greenwich which also provides on site training facilities.
The relocation is being carefully managed by both the RCP and the FOM, so there will be business continuity and you should not experience disruption to services.
Following the relocation, the FOM will work with key stakeholders to review governance arrangements, to ensure that SEQOHS remains highly beneficial and relevant, and to develop SEQOHS for the future.

have already begun to notice the changes and improvements in how the scheme
operates. I look forward to continuing to support SEQOHS in my new role
on the Faculty's council as we look towards 2020 and the revision of the
Thank you, Rob, and all the best in the future from us in the SEQOHS office. In the interim, we are pleased to report that Wendy Ladd (SEQOHS assessment and quality lead) will be covering the role of clinical lead for the duration of 2019. Congratulations, Wendy!
