We offer health screening to determine future health risks such as stroke, diabetes, heart disease and cancer risk

These can be conducted in 10 min appointments throughout the day, where the employee gets the results before they leave with lifestyle and nutrition advice offered tailored to them and their results. A great way to engage staff and for them to know their numbers which can determine their own future health risks.

Alison, at AC Health and Nutrition is offering a new initiative focussing on maintaining employees at a healthy weight which is linked to the risk reduction of a wide range of a preventable ill health issues.

Up to 25% of the working age population in the UK suffer from one long-term condition which can be weight-related such as heart disease related to hypertension, diabetes, obesity, musculoskeletal disorders, and depression. Over half of people with a long-term condition say that their health is a barrier to the type or amount of work they can do, rising to over 80% when someone has three or more conditions, so experts who commission employee wellbeing programmes are increasingly looking for solutions which target this issue.

In addition, the health of the UK workforce is at the heart of a raft of new government policies and guidelines, including the NHS Five Year Forward View and the public health guidance for the workplace from the National institute for Clinical Excellence (NICE). NICE calculates that there are significant workplace costs associated with obesity-related ill health in the workplace for the employer – for an organisation employing 1000 people, this could equate to more than £126,000 a year in lost productivity due to a range of issues including back and sleep problems.
