Supporting Better Health In Workplaces
Healthworks has, and continues to, support a range North East based businesses and organisations to promote healthier workplaces.
We offer a range of services that support and promote improved health in workplaces.
Many local businesses and organisation have engaged us to deliver training, awareness sessions, staff support sessions and NHS Health Checks as part of their working towards the Better Health At Work Award.
We are trained to carry out NHS Health Checks. These are for adults in England aged 40 to 74. The NHS Health Check is designed to spot early signs of stroke, kidney disease, heart disease, type 2 diabetes or dementia. As we get older, we have a higher risk of developing one of these conditions, having an NHS Health Check helps find ways to lower this risk.
Our staff have visited a number of workplaces to deliver Talk Cancer Awareness Sessions and also to deliver Cancer Champion training courses. We are able to offer these services remotely by video, co please contact us if you would like to find out more. Visit our Cancer Awareness page for more information about these services.
We have also offered Stop Smoking support to members of staff in local businesses that wish to quit smoking. As part of our “Quit For COVID” work, we set up a stop smoking service to provide one to one stop smoking support for Newcastle Hospital staff. The outcomes of this work have so far been amazing and our staff have so far helped 23 members of staff quit successfully! You can find out more about our Stop Smoking service here.
If you would like to join the many businesses and organisations we have already helped and are interested in finding out more about how we can help you achieve a healthier workplace or if you are working towards the Better Health At Work award, we’d love to hear from you so please get in touch.
