Best known for her weekly health column in the Mail on Sunday and as a regular on Sky News Sunrise and LBC’s Health Hour, Cannon will discuss the causes of job related illnesses and practical advice on how to deal with it.

Cannon said: “Work-related stress or illness can happen to you, no matter what job you do.

“It doesn’t seem to discriminate, although of course it’s more prevalent in those jobs with high workloads, tight deadlines or toxic colleagues.

“Haven’t there always been tough deadlines, mammoth workloads and overtime – why has this epidemic of work-related illness arisen now?”
