The team at North Cumbria Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) is celebrating after recently being awarded the bronze award from the Better Health at Work Awards.

The Better Health at Work Award is an initiative that recognises the efforts of employers who address and embed health and wellbeing within their workplace. The CCG has helped support staff members at the organisation to improve their Health and Wellbeing and take more responsibility for their own health resulting in this bronze award.

The scheme recognised a variety of campaigns and initiatives taking place throughout the organisation which was championed by nine ‘Health Advocates’ - staff members who are passionate about championing health and wellbeing in the workplace.

Following a health needs assessment which was conducted in May 2018, findings were combined with information from the National NHS Staff Survey to determine how staff could be better supported with their health and wellbeing.

Activities and initiatives included walks, runs, spinning sessions, NHS1000 miles challenge, lunch & learn talks on various health issues, as well as a monthly fruit stall to encourage healthy eating.

One of the CCG’s Health Advocates Vicky Bulman said: “We are completely thrilled and proud that all the efforts of CCG staff have been recognised by this award.

“Members of staff have been very dedicated to improving their health and wellbeing throughout last year and moving into this New Year, showing great spirit and enthusiasm to support this excellent initiative.

“Our activity won’t stop as we are continuing our 1000 miles challenge again this year and are very excited to continue our health and wellbeing activities and messages.”

CCG Health Advocate Jo Percival added: “All the Health Advocates have done such a fantastic job in supporting the organisation to achieve this award in such a short timescale.

“Being better informed on health matters has helped staff to consider how they can be more active, eat better, drink less and support their own mental health, and that of others.

“It’s been a real team effort to run the campaigns and gain this bronze award.”
