Reasons to attend the ARIOPS Conference and AGM:

  • The aim of ARIOPS is to connect all clinicians providing occupational health services to the railway industry. The Annual Conference brings together clinicians from across the railway industry to meet and hear about relevant railway themes.
  • It’s a day to hear about new issues or to update on topics which we come across in a normal working day. It is particularly rewarding to have the opportunity to meet colleagues and discuss common matters within a sociable environment.
  • The ARIOPS programme usually receives CPD accreditation to give 4 points for attendance for the day.


ARIOPS encourages all those providing occupational services to the railway industry to attend: the more, the merrier

The Conference venue

ARIOPS will this year return to The National Railway Museum in York, the home of iconic locomotives and an unrivalled collection of engineering brilliance.  This is a very apt venue for ARIOPS and the modern purpose-built conference facilities will again be ideal.

The Museum is only a few minutes’ walk from York Station and the route is signposted.

For information on finding the Museum, follow this link:



York is the ultimate UK city break destination that offers something for everyone: world-class museums, attractions, historic highlights such as the City Walls as well as characterful shops and an eclectic mix of esteemed restaurants.


If you require accommodation around your stay in York, please contact Rebecca at the Secretariat [email protected] for information and special rates.

Joining Instructions will be issued by E-mail around 10 days before the Conference.
