Back in December 2022, the Trust earned the Silver Better Health At Work Award. As part of planned efforts to now ‘go for gold’, we must consult staff about their most pressing health needs.

To do this, we’re now promoting a Health Needs Assessment. The survey takes only 5 minutes to complete, and asks a series of questions about your help before asking where you’d like to see more support – helping inform where our focus should be as an organisation and Occupational Health and Wellbeing team, provide us with ideas and take action.

Back in 2021, the Health Needs Assessment we conducted to achieve our Bronze award told us that colleagues were particularly keen for improved menopause support. As a result, we partnered up with Henpicked and launched our Menopause Warriors support group – which since led to the launch of menopause buddies as well as ongoing work to produce a menopause policy.

To make your voice heard, help direct our focus and ensure we’re effectively helping you, please take 5 minutes today to complete a Health Needs Assessment.
