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.
