The NAH works alongside health professionals every day and our service extends to provide guidance and support to practice managers, hospital staff and occupational nurses.
We offer advice and help to establish accurate diagnosis for individuals wishing to claim civil compensation and government benefits, which can make all the difference to the quality of their care and family’s future.
Below and in the tool bar to the left of this page we have provided practical information that health professionals may find useful and could employ for the benefit of their patients. Call our FREEPHONE number 0808 274 9185 if you would like to speak to us directly about asbestos-related issues.
Can we help your department?

The presentation includes:
