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

Our focus for the award was on the following campaigns:
• Alcohol and drug awareness
• Healthy eating and oral health
• Men’s health
• Stress and mental health

A cycle to work scheme has also been introduced along with improvements to the Stress Risk Assessment process and the production of a healthy eating statement. A procedure for staff regarding domestic abuse is also currently in development.

In 2017, NECS will aim to achieve the Gold Better Health at Work Award. This will involve the development of a three year health and wellbeing strategy, promoting health within the wider community, including family, friends and CCG colleagues and the continuation of a range of health campaigns and wellbeing programmes.
