Henri Vale

mum-1Henri came to occupational health from a nursing background, and qualified as a Specialist Occupational Health Practitioner in 1989. She initially worked for BMI providing occupational health support to a variety of companies, but in 1999 went freelance as an independent OH Practitioner (Health@Work). Her companies have diverse interests, ranging from the heavier end of construction and petrochemicals to the more white collar worlds of tv media and the National Portrait Gallery. In 2008 Henri set up Opus Health UK Ltd to manage her service more efficiently.

Henri visits her clients to provide OH support tailored to them and to advise both managers and employees. She supports people who are away from work due to long term ill health, and assists them to reintegrate back into the workplace at the appropriate time. In this she will be assisted by other professionals where necessary, for example Ros Richardson who sees people with psychological problems. For those returning from a period of ill health she will advise managers about appropriate changes to work hours and the working environment to ensure the individual reintegrates successfully.

She is available to discuss individual health concerns and how and where to access appropriate support through GPs and Specialists. Health surveillance is undertaken for those employees involved in activities that may be harmful to their health.  Mini health assessments with health information to support them are carried out once  a year.

Henri is available by email and via her office on a daily basis. To make an appointment to see Henri please contact us.
