About Us

Flex Occupational Health was founded by Sarah Fowler, a Registered Nurse, Specialist Community Public Health Nurse and Queen’s Nurse with 25 years clinical and management experience. Sarah has worked across the NHS, public and private sectors and has considerable experience of reviewing and re-designing occupational health services.

Occupational Health focuses on the physical and mental health and wellbeing of employees in the workplace.  We provide an impartial service that supports both the employer and the employee through flexible, high-quality clinical advice and recommendations. Our aim is to ensure that your employees are fit for work, appropriately supported to do so, and that your organisation complies with Health and Safety and Equality Act legislation.

The Flex approach is underpinned by a holistic assessment which recognises the multiple, and often competing influences on an individual’s wellbeing, resilience and ability to work effectively.  Our advice and services are always tailored to the needs of your business whilst helping to optimise the health of your employees.

Flex offers innovative and contemporary occupational health services and we can help you achieve better employee health and wellbeing and reduced sickness absence costs. We believe in creating collaborative relationships to support a bespoke clinical service which will always meet your specific needs.

At Flex we believe that better health results in better business.
