Peninsula Community Health 2015

A brief summary of why we became a healthy workplace

Peninsula Community Health became a healthy workplace because as an organisation we believe that our employees are our best asset and ambassadors. If we do not protect, maintain and promote their health and wellbeing then we will not be able to provide high quality care to the people of Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly.

 

Recent health and well being activities

  • Wellbeing engagement sessions on a range of topics
  • Resources such as leaflets on various topics
  • New logo for staff wellbeing information
  • Health awareness stands
  • Participating in campaigns
  • Seasonal flu vaccination
  • Staff  wellbeing group

Plans/aims for the next year

As an organisation, over the next year, we are also aiming to continue to develop on the work that we have already done so that we can continue to protect, maintain and promote the health of all our employees as well as exploring other new initiatives. It is also developed a distinct branding for use in the organisation to further promote wellbeing to its staff with the final logo being chosen by staff. Staff engagement sessions are being widened out to include health and wellbeing topics. A group of staff have set up a get healthy group at one of our hospitals and a number of staff from across the organisation have also joined in.

‘Keeping our notice board up to date is a great way to demonstrate to colleagues, patients and visitors how the organisation is helping us to be healthier’
