26 November, 2013
Submitted: 4 December, 2013
Together with NHS East of England, all staff within the Trust aged 40+ were offered a free NHS health check. To complement this, a comprehensive well-person screening programme was introduced trust-wide, irrespective of age. This screening is offered to all staff twice a year and staff members may also book a well person screening appointment on request. This screening includes height, weight, and BMI analysis and Cholesterol and Glucose testing.
Within MEHT, staff health checks commence with new starter health screening, immunisation reviews and ongoing health checks ensuring that all new starters are fit and remain fit throughout their employment.
