Staff health improvement project –  Royal College of Physicians (RCP) – 20 August 2012

“The Royal College of Physicians (RCP) has published the interim report and a summary of its Staff Health Improvement Project.

In 2010 the RCP’s Health and Work Development Unit (HWDU) – a partnership between the RCP and the Faculty of Occupational Medicine (FOM) – measured how far NHS trusts across England had progressed with implementing the NICE public health guidance for the workplace. The audit covered areas such as obesity, mental wellbeing and management of long-term sickness absence.

Implementation of the NICE recommendations benefits organisations by improving staff health and wellbeing, leading to better productivity, improved patient outcomes and increased financial savings.

Phase one of the Staff Health Improvement Project involved interviewing 22 trusts about their approach to successfully implementing the guidance. The interim report and summary describes the findings from those interviews, including a description of enablers and barriers to implementation and a summary of the key initiatives that have been put in place.

The summary interim report is aimed at HR Directors and board members with responsibility for staff health and wellbeing. The full interim report is aimed at health and wellbeing implementers.”
