Health Promotion

A large proportion of diseases in the UK today can be attributed to lifestyle-related behaviours such as smoking, eating a poorly balanced diet resulting in obesity, physical inactivity and drinking too much alcohol. That’s why there’s never been a better time to tackle your unhealthy habits – because the longer you carry on giving in to your vices, the more damage you could potentially be doing to your wellbeing.

The World Health Organisation (WHO) acknowledges the growing evidence that health promotion and preventive health approaches are effective in improving overall health, reducing the burden of chronic disease and injury and addressing health inequities. Furthermore, a proactive approach to improving health before disease becomes an issue ultimately leads to staff taking less sick days, therefore enhancing economic productivity.

It’s because of this that we’re proud to be ambassadors of health and wellbeing – we’re delighted to be educating and encouraging life choices to help you get the most out of each and every day. So keep an eye on our news section for events that will support you in your quest for a healthier lifestyle – we can’t wait to work with you and help you reap the rewards of better physical and mental wellbeing.
