Dr. Magdalena Janas
Occupational Health Physician at Wrightway Health
I completed my specialty training in internal medicine in Poland in 2004 working for over 10 years as a hospital ward physician but also in primary care and elderly care settings.
After moving to the UK, I was working as a disability analyst. It allowed me to acquire considerable skills in evaluation of functional capacity of the individuals in relation to work environment. I also gained the experience in a range of occupational and work related ill health problems. I completed DDAM in 2011 and DOccMed in 2016. I am also an OGUK accredited doctor. I am currently undertaking an MSC Occupational Medicine course with the aim of expanding my competence in occupational health issues.
I welcome my role as an OH physician with Wrightway Health being particularly interested in the holistic approach to the working people’s health and in promoting health at work by delivering effective medical advice.
