H6. Staff Health Checks
8 January, 2014
Submitted: 27 April, 2015
How many of your employees have used the staff health check offer? If unknown, please explain why.
Our annual Wellbeing Day took place in February; over 50 members of staff took advantage of the mini health screenings on offer. Our nurse advisers ran a stand promoting Oral health and were able to offer advice and support to staff with any concerns in that area. They also had a Nutrition and Weight management stall, which proved popular with those staff wishing to take a more proactive look at their diet, portion control, nutritional values and who wanted to discuss weight concerns.
An inspirational dietician gave an informative presentation on the food we eat with a nutritional update. Our Clinical Nurse Adviser gave a talk about common bowel problems such as Irritable Bowel Syndrome, which was very well received. Our in-house gym offered mini fitness checks on the day and we continue to offer weekly yoga and posture and relaxation classes throughout the year.
On 17 March we held a Blood Pressure Awareness Day and throughout the year over 400 people had their blood pressure checked. Staff with diabetes were able to have their blood sugar levels monitored and our well women and well man seminars continued to run.
We supported the Stoptober campaign and ran one to one and group smoking cessation sessions throughout the year.
