H6. Staff Health Checks
5 August, 2013
Submitted: 5 August, 2013
We will work with Cambridgeshire County Council and other Local Authorities to encourage our staff to access provision of free NHS Health Checks, where possible during work time without loss of pay. These include:
- the 5 yearly NHS Health Check for people aged 40 -74 (who haven't already been diagnosed with or had a stroke, heart disease, diabetes or kidney disease) when invited;
- online tools such as LifeCheck; and
- NHS screening programmes when invited.
Where possible we will include other staff from other Government Departments co-located at Eastbrook or other locations.
An Anglia and Essex Centre Staff Working Group is being convened in September 2013, and will be fully involved in the implementation and delivery of a Health at Work Action Plan which will incorporate this and other pledges.
