The Vocational Rehabilitation Awards 2022

DATE / TIME 01/12/2022
11:00 am - 1:00 pm



Following the success of our virtual awards in 2020 and 2021we’re following the same format again this year. There will be an opportunity to ask questions of our finalists as well as hearing about their work in their words! This is a great opportunity to learn more about some of the great things going on in the sector.

We’re delighted that our presenter is Dr Rob Hampton, a friend of the VRA, who is well-known advocate of Vocational Rehabilitation. Rob will be sharing some of his thoughts about health and work and opening the all-important golden envelopes!

We’ve had amazing feedback on our previous online awards event with 95% of the attendees saying they would attend a future VRA Awards so this really is not to be missed!

  • “Fascinating to hear about all the work people are doing.”
  • “it was so informative, in particular the Q&A session.”
  • “It was great to hear about the different works people are involved in, and how relevant they are especially in these times.”
  • “Liked the fast paced event and the overview of all entries”
  • “Being inspired by all the excellent presentations”

Our Speaker

Rob Hampton qualified as a Doctor in 1986 and has worked in General Practice since 1990. Having worked as a GP Principal for many years, he chose to become a Freelance GP in 2012. His work has included being a GP with a Special Interest (GPSI) for people with substance misuse problems, musculoskeletal pain and occupational medicine. He was recently elected to the RCGP Council and is a Medical Champion for Work as a Health Outcome with Public Health England.

He was Clinical Lead for one of the UK Fit for Work pilots (2008-12) that provided a referral service for GPs to help people with long term physical and mental health conditions stay in the workplace. This led to a number of follow-on projects aimed at improving care for the people of working age with chronic musculoskeletal pain conditions. These were recognised through various awards, from VRA, BMJ and NHS England.

Rob’s aim is to see a world where GPs will naturally refer patients for vocational rehabilitation as they would when requesting a blood test, X-ray or other forms of therapy.
