Dr Maling and Partners

A brief summary of why we became a healthy workplace

We also feel it is important to take care of ourselves as well as our patients.  If we are not on top form we cannot hope to serve our patients well.

          

Recent health and well being activities

Since taking part in the Healthy Workplace scheme our staff have taken many initiatives to improve their health such as stopping smoking, joining regular exercise classes and becoming more aware of health issues such as sun safety, back care and controlling stress.

Plans/aims for the next year

We hope to take part in the Active Workplace Challenge this year and to continue our good work.

The scheme has allowed all the staff to join together in a common purpose no matter what their level of health or fitness. I myself only ever surfed on the sofa and now I have discovered how much I enjoy exercise and how beneficial it is to body and soul. My message to others is that you should never be afraid to exercise. It doesn't matter what or how much you do as long as you are moving and being active in our fantastic Cornish environment.

Smoking

Those who smoke six cigarettes a day or more have a 34% higher incidence of being absent than non-smokers and a 10% higher incidence of being absent for longer.

Cancer Support in the Workplace - Dec 2013

Almost one person in five with cancer who was employed full time when they were diagnosed felt that their employer could have done more to understand their needs and circumstances, a poll by insurer Unum and Maggie's Cancer Caring Centres found.  Better communication was the key, it added.  ( Occupational Health, December 2013)
