Message from Rachel Faulkner

Date: 19 Sep 2018

Dear all,

After 10 wonderful years as the Workplace Health Coordinator, it is time for me to move on.  I have been offered a new role as Staff Health & Wellbeing Lead at Cornwall Partnership NHS Foundation Trust and I will be leaving the Healthy Workplace programme at the beginning of November 2018.
I am so proud of the Healthy Workplace Programme and it’s been a fabulous journey right from the start, seeing it develop and grow into a very successful and award winning programme. You have all been a huge part of that journey and I really have loved developing partnerships and working with you all to help me do this. 

In addition, to see you all make positive changes and improve the health and well-being of your staff, has been truly awesome.  I feel it’s been a real privilege to work alongside so many wonderful passionate people and business who really do want to make a difference and I hope in my new role, I will still get to see and work with some of you and I really hope you all continue all of your great work.
Over the past few years it has been amazing to work with Amy and Graham who have been a fantastic asset to the Healthy Workplace Programme and I know I am leaving it in safe and capable hands.  It is also great to have Lucy Brown recently join the Healthy Workplace team too, so I know you will all have lots of support in the future and I will miss my team so very much.
I hope I get to see many of you before I leave my role at the beginning of November (see below re my leaving Health Walk), or at future events (as I now have a new challenge to help improve staff health and well-being within Cornwall Partnership NHS Foundation Trust), so our paths may cross again.
Please do keep up the fantastic work you all do, I know it is not always easy, but never give up making a difference within your organisations!

If anyone would like to join me on a Health Walk to say goodbye, at Cardinham Woods, Bodmin at 16.15 on the 2nd November 2018, I'd really love to see you there...
I will miss you all.
Thank you so much.
Rach xxxx

Pedometer Feedback

"The pedometer challenge was excellent for pushing me out of the door to exercise on rainy windy nights when I would otherwise have stayed in; it was a great way to get into regular exercise whilst ignoring the blisters on my feet." - David Salter, Financial Controller, Coastline Housing Ltd
