PROHMS founder comes full circle

TWENTY years ago, Sandra Babbings was busy looking after the health of the workforce at Huddersfield motor manufacturer Brook Crompton.
Now life has come full circle – as her occupation health business opens new headquarters and a health academy at the self-same offices in the old Brook Crompton building at St Thomas. Road, Longroyd Bridge.
Working in occupational health at the now defunct engineering firm made such an impression on Sandra that she decided to make it her career.
It took a few more years, but from these early days and experiences came an occupational health management company called PROHMS.
Said Sandra: “Over the last few years, PROHMS has gone from strength to strength and provided significant employment in an area of healthcare that is becoming crucial to forward-thinking companies wishing to look after the most valued asset – their people!”
PROHMS now has other divisions that include physiotherapy, a health retreat at Hoylandswaine, near Penistone, and a critical incident division to assist businesses when they go through major trauma such as serious industrial accidents and other crises.
The new PROHMS Health Academy aims to improve the regions’ health with programmes designed for every desired health outcome.
In conjunction with Matt Coulson, the local fitness guru, Sandra has taken the health of the regions’ people to new heights.
