Dr Tony Mawson
Consultant Occupational Physician
My typical day at work: As the consultant physician, I design and oversee all our clinical services. I also spend a large amount of the week seeing employees and advising both them and their employer about managing health problems and providing support in the workplace.
Out of hours: I am a keen photographer and also enjoy music, playing the guitar and saxophone. On balance, probably a better photographer than a musician.
My typical day at work: Clinical work is always varied, and no two days are the same which even after more than 25 years’ experience in occupational medicine makes my role interesting. The role also gives me time for my other work which involves postgraduate teaching and research in occupational medicine. It is also great to work in a friendly and supportive environment.
Out of hours: Having carer responsibilities for elderly relatives, and an elderly rescue dog with health issues, means I appreciate a flexible work-life balance. I get plenty of opportunity for walking but also enjoy doing fun runs for charity and voluntary educator roles with young people.
Annette AllenOccupational Health Nurse My typical day at work: My work involves carrying out a variety of health assessments for fitness to work following appropriate guidance, as well as wellbeing assessments and other clinical duties. I work part time which gives me plenty of time for other activities. Out of hours: I enjoy spending time with my two young Granddaughters. I also volunteer at a local primary school helping with reading for year 1 pupils and love seeing their progress. I look after my daughters’ dog whilst she is working abroad and enjoy taking him for daily walks.
