Focused workplace wellbeing programme

Royal Free London NHS Foundation Trust



Evaluation and outcomes

  • Staff reported feeling in better physical and mental health as a result of attending the walking activities (scheduled for end of facilities staff shifts) and other activities.
  • Many individuals referred to completing a Snowdon expedition as part of the programme as their greatest physical achievement. Increasing their physical activity: staff reported this was something they did not think they were capable of and would not have had the opportunity to do without the support of the programme.
  • Managers reported improved attendance at work by individual staff members who have previously had very high rates of sickness absence.
  • Following the programme, there was a 71% response rate to the staff survey by facilities staff (trust average of 42%) and improved attendance and involvement at facilities team meetings by lower band staff.
