We were proud to present the Team of the Month award for December to our amazing Occupational Health (OH) team.
The confidential nature of this team’s work often means its light is hidden under a bushel, so it’s great to be able to recognise the impact it has on the health and wellbeing of our staff.
Hard work and dedication
Occupational Health Manager, Michael Cockayne, nominated the team for its consistent hard work and dedication – reflected in excellent feedback from across the Trust.
Alongside the daily assessments and health and wellbeing advice to staff and managers, the team has delivered the flu campaign and resilience and self-care workshops, plus forged key relationships with crucial services such as Mental Health Access to Work, Bradford Council’s smoking cessation service and local mental health groups and charities.
Last year it also responded with urgency and direction to multiple measles outbreaks in Bradford which involved screening hundreds of our staff to maintain workforce levels – all managed alongside existing clinics and routine work.
