About Collingwood Health Ltd

On one root, Collingwood traces its origins back to 1947, pre-dating the NHS, where we became the first recognisable “occupational health” company in Britain. Founded as a charity, that entity became known as Corporate Health, with four clinics in and around Slough and the South East.

On the other root, Collingwood emerged from the industrial heartland of the post-war period, as the in-house welfare arm of British Steel, headquartered in Sheffield. Through various iterations from the 1950’s onwards, this became EEF Occupational Health in 2006.

Both organisations can rightly claim to have been at the vanguard of the branch of medicine that we now know as occupational health.

Collingwood Health acquired EEF Occupational Health in 2011, and Corporate Health in 2015.

Both now sit branded under the same tree: Collingwood Health
