Our work is focused on Person-centred Care; Staff Health and Wellbeing; and the Hospital Environment.

What does that mean?

  • Person Centred Care: To integrate prevention into clinical care and improve health outcomes for our patients
  • Staff Health and Wellbeing: To improve staff health both in the workplace and home environment
  • Hospital Environment: To create an environment where healthier choices are the easy choice

We do this in a range of ways such as:

  • motivating and empowering staff, patients and visitors to improve their health
  • setting up schemes promoting a healthy lifestyle such as ‘cycle to work’, Fresh Fruit and Vegetable stalls etc
  • promoting national and local campaign such as ‘ What Matters To You’, ‘Mental Health Awareness Week’ etc
  • implementing government initiatives relating to public health such as ‘smokefree NHS grounds’ etc

Well@Work sits within Health Promoting Health Service

What is Well@Work?

The Well at Work initiative is in place to support our employees to achieve a healthy work-life balance.

What does it do?

We actively support staff health by raising awareness of topics such as:

  • Healthy eating
  • Physical activity
  • Stress reduction
  • Stopping smoking
  • Sensible drinking

We offer a fruit and vegetable stall on a weekly basis throughout the year at Queen Margaret Hospital and Victoria Hospital Kirkcaldy, as shown in the photo above.
