"We would like to offer all members and their Associates a free one hour session on their company premises (within a 30 mile radius of Stockport to discuss their Occupational Health requirements. This can include advice to managers on returning employees to work after accident or illness, in most cases quicker than their GP. Did you know that you are entitled to take the advice of Occupational Health, if we advise you that an employee is fit to return to work but the GP continues to issue Fit Notes? This is because, by working closely with you, we have working knowledge of your workplace, something the GP is unlikely to have.

What members and guests say

"Imagine a networking group that runs like clockwork, with no scary moments, no feeling of wasting your time and no dread when it's time for the next one! I tried a number of different networking groups in the early days of my business and the Preston Business-Network was the only one I have kept on. It is run superbly well by experienced businesswomen Karen Tems supported by warm, friendly helpers. They only allow professionals, senior staff and decision-makers to join, which ensures that contacts made are top-quality. Just the number of strategic business partnerships I have made makes it worth my membership fee, but I have also made sales and had referrals. The free seminars are also excellent and have included some top speakers - including Ian Brodie and Will Kintish. Come along as a guest one month, we will all make you very welcome. "
