Transformation and cultural change

Health and Wellbeing Event

3rd June 2011

A staff health event was run to encourage staff to consider the importance of their own health, identify risk and respond to these accordingly. NHS, council and voluntary organisations provided screening and awareness stands and staff were free to attend throughout the day. Topics covered included Alcohol, Blood Pressure, Body Composition, Cancer, Cholesterol, Glucose, Smoking, Stress and Stroke. We used interactive tools to create personalised information to motivate change. The first event was well attended with over 220 staff, and follow up screening covered a further 100. 49 staff members identified health problems and have received follow up service.
