Investing In Your Health

The Western Trust is committed to promoting the health and wellbeing of its staff.  Achieving both a workplace and a workforce which are healthy is central to ensuring an efficient and effective organisation in which staff feel cared for, supported and valued and clients and patients receive services that are of the highest quality and delivered in a way which is caring, sensitive and reflective of their specific needs, circumstances and situations.

 

A two year 'Investing in your Health Strategy' has been developed which provides the foundation for a Trust wide integrated approach to staff health and wellbeing.  It presents the evidence of why workplace health is important, highlights staff views, priorities and opinions and recognises services and programmes the Trust is providing to improve staff health.

 

Some of the services/programmes include:

 

·         The Step for Health Challenge

·         Swim Scheme

·         Corporate Leisure Rates

·         Cycle to Work

·         Smoking Cessation

·         Cancer Prevention

·         Health Fairs
