As part of our ongoing work to improve the health and wellbeing of staff, we have created a digital ‘Health Wall’ featuring some of the links to organisations that provide expert information and advice for a number of health related issues.
This ‘Health Wall’ is just a small part of a wider transition from an authority that focuses on sickness absence to one that supports attendance and it is hoped that staff will find this of benefit in supporting their own health and attendance at work.
To add to this wall please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
