Dr David Batman has been a registered medical practitioner in the UK for over 40 years. He started work as a General Practitioner and has always recognized the importance of patient lifestyle affecting health risks. However, after trying to get his patients to adopt health lifestyles he recognized the vast majority wanted a quick solution via either prescription or operation. He also became very aware of the relationship between work and health which is not a major part of a doctor’s training and decided to move to a medical speciality.

He left General Practice in 1988 and retrained as a Specialist Consultant in Occupational Medicine gaining his higher qualifications and has been awarded a Fellowship by his UK Professional body. He spent 20 years as Head of Occupational Health, Safety and Employee Wellbeing for Nestle in the UK and Ireland and has special interests in mental health at work, risk assessments, rehabilitation and resettlement of employees. He has been part of a number of UK Government employee health committees.

He has advised other major businesses including Marks and Spencer, Manchester Airports Authority, P&O Ferries. Dr. Batman was the chief medical officer for Global Corporate Challenge for 10 years and is now part of Virgin Pulse, and also now runs his own consultancy and advises a multitude of small organizations on helping employees at work with health problems.

David is married with three grown up children and four grandchildren. He remains active, loves to travel the world, is an active gardener and cook, and an avid reader.
