HEOPS is the professional association for all occupational health professionals working in the UK higher education sector.

Our purpose is to develop and promote best practice in the provision of occupational health (OH) services in the higher education (HE) sector.

HEOPS develops sector-specific policies and guidance on the control and management of health risks in the HE Sector. We assist national bodies, including the General Medical Council, Medical Schools Council, Nursing and Midwifery Council, Health and Care Professions Council and UCEA to develop their policies and guidance on fitness to practise, and on protecting and promoting the health of staff and students in their work and studies.
