Staff Health & Wellbeing Roadshow

Our Trust hosts a number of benefits and offers for all staff, and on Tuesday 19th March, staff were encouraged to pop along and find out more about the range of benefits and support on offer at the Health and Wellbeing Roadshow at Edward Street Hospital. Various external organisations displayed valuable benefit packages, discounts and offers that are readily available to everyone working in the Trust, including Red Guava benefits, Estate Planning & Will Specialists, and Vivup.

Staff took part in interactive activities, such as relaxing tai chi sessions and foot health assessments, kindly provided by physiotherapy assistant Sheila Ram and Meg Hammond respectively. Other popular activities that were co-ordinated on the day included soothing hot wax therapies, facilitated by occupational therapist Deena Cass and light hand touch therapy, which was provided by technical instructor Nicky Shilvock.

Senior Divisional Human Resource Advisor for Mental Health Directorate and coordinator of the event Angie Dunkley, says, “Health and wellbeing is an integral part of the Trust's ethos of supporting our staff. The aim of setting up such an event is to enable our staff to have easy access to the supportive benefits we have and are continually striving to put in place. Whether its them taking part in a physical activity or seeking support or advise from Staff Support or our spirituality teams, able to purchase a bike via the cycle to work scheme or benefiting from a discount from a local store.”

A massive well done to everyone involved - an insightful event enjoyed by all, and we can’t wait for the next roadshow on the 11th November! For more photos of the event, check out our Facebook and Twitter pages @BCPFT.
