At Barking Havering and Redbridge University Hospitals NHS Trust we have an in-house Occupational Health and Wellbeing Service. The service is working towards SEQOSH Accreditation and plans to achieve this by March 2013. We currently provide a service to 6858 Trust staff and a further 5500 external clients.The emphasis of our service delivery is moving to be more proactive rather than reactive with an emphasis on wellbeing and on occupational health rather than occupational sickness. We have introduced Staff health checks, rapid access physiotherapy, Smoking cessation clinics and dietician referrals. Acupuncture and reflexology are also offered within the department. The existing counselling service has been reviewed and the implementation of a full Employee Assistance Programme is under way.
