We are delighted to announce that NECS has been successful in achieving the Gold Better Health at Work Award.

This builds on the Silver award that was achieved in 2017.

To achieve the Gold award the team focused on the following campaigns:

  • Mental health awareness
  • Alcohol and drug abuse
  • Healthy eating and weight management
  • Cancer awareness physical activity

In addition, the team provided mentoring to a GP practice, created the NECS health and wellbeing strategy and held a range of awareness days on interesting health topics for NECS staff.

The Gold Award was collected by members of the Health and Wellbeing Group at a celebration event held in Durham.

More exciting work is to come in 2018 with a focus on mental health awareness.
