Sheffield Teaching Hospitals
To prove the effectiveness of our health assessments, Sheffield Hallam University carried out a six month pilot with 50 staff members at Sheffield Teaching Hospitals. The programme returned a saving of over £36,000 based solely on the reduced sickness absence of participants. It produced significant improvements in levels of aerobic fitness, weight and cardiovascular disease risk factors.
Almost nine out of ten participants agreed the project had a positive impact on their motivation to make changes to their lifestyle or health. This included physical activity (71%) and improving healthy eating (71%).
