Southmead Hospital builders given a health check
Hundreds of builders who are helping to shape the city's health for the future have been given a hand to improve their own.
Builders and tradespeople working on the new Southmead Hospital have benefited from drop-in clinics run by NHS Bristol's public health team.They have been given advice on blood-pressure, healthy eating and smoking as part of the scheme.Mark Allen, health promotion specialist said: "We know that site-workers work long hours and have a tough and demanding job that can lead to higher levels of smoking as well as poor dietary habits. "Rather than just drop off some leaflets at the site we have actively been working with the site-workers, providing impartial and non-judgemental advice right where they can access it – in the canteen. The project has been a great success and is something we hope to build upon in the future - no pun intended." Pat Diskett, Bristol's deputy director of public health said that all employers have a duty to care for the health of their staff and the NHS works with employers across the city to provide health information and advice for their staff.
Keith Hutton, project director for Carillion, the developers behind the new hospital, said: "I am delighted that we have engaged with Bristol NHS in this very worthwhile initiative. People are our most valuable resource and it is only right that we are proactive in encouraging their good health and wellbeing."
