Gosport scheme aims to help staff be healthier
THE success of a scheme to improve the lives of employees will be celebrated at an event.
Fareham and Gosport Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) launched its Making Every Contact Count programme two years ago.
Its aim was to encourage workforces toÂ look at their lifestyle and make changes to be healthier. The evidence-based interventions included stopping smoking, increasing exercise, reducing alcohol consumption and eatingÂ healthy.
Sue Clarke, head of workforce and education at the CCG said: '˜More than 250 people have been trained through the network includingÂ nurses, GP receptionists, librarians, housing officers, teachers, nurseryÂ staff and leisure centre staff. We are delightedÂ the project has received widespread support.'
An event talking aboutÂ Making Every Contact Count will be held at St Vincent College between 9.30am and 2.30pm onÂ September 20.
