Health Promotion Service, Redruth

At the Health Promotion Service, we have set up a workplace health working group, conducted two health at work questionnaires and have been trying to look at how we can improve the health of our staff!

We have a great team and to date we now have a ‘Kernow Building Gardening Club’, ‘A Choir’ and have organised a wide range of activities, taster sessions and events including:

  • Healthy Lunchtime Walks
  • Step-o-meter Challenge
  • Honesty Snack Box
  • Physical Activity Sessions -
  • Massage & Reflexology sessions
  • Introducing a Mentoring Scheme
  • Love Yourself, Look after Your Heart
  • Active Travel Days
  • Delivery of  'Healthy Boxes' weekly
  • Craft sessions
  • Obtained two pool bikes
  • Dedicated Health at Work notice board
  • Entered a team in the 2009 Race for Life!

We hold regular workplace health working group meetings and our aim is to continue to try and improve staff health and well-being here at Health Promotion.

I was in my previous post for nearly six years and there was no workplace health programme at all.

When I started here and found what is available to staff, often delivered by other staff, I was really impressed and have been trying all sorts of things!

Health, wellbeing and productivity in the workplace

In the United Kingdom during 2013–2014 an estimated 1.2 million people who worked during the last
year were suffering from an illness (long-standing as well as new cases) they believed was caused or made worse by their current or past work. Half a million of these appear to be new conditions which started during the year.
