Book ICE Health Checks for your workplace

July 21, 2016 12:07

We work with businesses and organisations of all sizes to build a package of workplace wellness support to meet your needs.

Health Checks are a preventative health screening service that help to ensure staff remain fit and healthy and can result in increased business productivity and reduced absenteeism. They have also been recognised as a catalyst to a cultural shift towards a healthier and increasingly engaged workforce.

A Healthy Team Makes for a Healthy Business

We have built a package of different levels of health checks for you to purchase to allow all staff to benefit from a health check.

ICE Health Check

20-30 minutes

Includes: all of the screening components of the NHS Health Check - includes full individual personalised check results report. Results not shared with GP.

ICE Lifestyle MOT

15-20 minutes

Includes: height, weight, BMI recordings, body fat test, blood pressure readings, carbon monoxide test, alcohol, smoking and exercise assessment with results explained and personalised advice.

Following the Health Checks in your workplace, we can also provide a detailed report on the outcomes, which will outline key themes that are present within the workforce and areas of health and wellbeing for particular focus in the future.

These reports would show trends relating to the workforce but would be anonymised to protect the confidentiality of the employees.

In addition, our team offers a range of bespoke wellbeing and lifestyle health packages, including health promotion events and activities such as:

  • Training to become a health champion in your workplace
  • Workplace pedometer challenges
  • ‘Fit Clubs’ to encourage exercise and healthy eating
  • Smoothie bike hire.

Free NHS Health Checks in Worcestershire and North Yorkshire

July 21, 2016 10:57

At a time when the evidence for investment in employee health and wellbeing has never been stronger, but a challenging economic climate makes it difficult to fund, this FREE and proactive service is an ideal ‘win win’ opportunity for both employer and employee.

NHS Health Checks are also informative and can act as a ‘wake up call’ giving staff the opportunity to play an active role in their own health and allowing them to use a service they may have been unlikely to use otherwise.

NHS Health Checks are a preventative health screening service that help to ensure staff remain fit and healthy and can result in increased business productivity and reduced absenteeism. They have also been recognised as a catalyst to a cultural shift towards a healthier and increasingly engaged workforce.

What Happens at a Health Check?

NHS Health Checks are free and take no longer than 30 minutes per employee. We will ask

questions about family history and current medications and record:

  • Blood pressure
  • Height, weight and BMI
  • Cholesterol levels
  • Blood sugar.

We also discuss lifestyle and offer tailored advice to help promote healthy activities such as diet and exercise and give tips on changes that could lower employee’s risk of suffering illness and disease in the future.

Employers that offer NHS Health Checks and actively promote staff health and wellbeing benefit from improved staff morale and engagement, improved productivity and in turn, profitability and a strengthened trust between managers and employees. Employees also feel invested in and cared about by their employer.
