The Trust's Health and Wellbeing Strategy sets out what the Trust offers in terms of a range of wellbeing resources; its aim is to set out the Trust's commitment to supporting staff health and wellbeing and to encourage staff to take personal responsibility for their own health. The Trust has a comprehensive Wellbeing at Work section on its intranet site which lists all the Trust's wellbeing resources, activities, information and promotes a range of fitness campaigns throughout the year.
Sickness absence rates are a key performance indicator for the organisation and these are reported to the Trust Board as well as to each clinical division and corporate area and regularly monitored at a local and Board level. Divisional action plans focus on reasons for absence and remedial actions to increase attendance. The Trust offers two in-house fast-track services for staff: Physiotherapy and Counselling. These aim at preventing potential absence from work or speed up return to work. There is also a comprehensive Employee Assistance Programme with 24/7 helpline and counselling options. Furthermore there is an on-site health club with a full programme of sports, fitness classes, pool, social club.
