Whether a ‘stand alone’ initiative or part of a corporate employee wellbeing event, MOHS can provide health checks and advice via a stand located in an easily accessible area (eg canteen, rest area, large meeting room etc) during a specified time / date where employees can come along at their convenience and have medical checks such as:
- blood pressure
- peak flow
- BMI assessment
and receive advice on medical concerns
Although the above tests are not carried out in a confidential setting, employees are usually happy to have these checks done in the company of colleagues and often will compare readings.
However, it may be advisable to have a room available should any employee be concerned about their results or prefer to discuss any medical concerns in private.
Advice can also be given on the signs and symptoms of breast and testicular cancer, and rubber models of both body parts are available to help employees understand how to check for lumps. We also provide supporting literature.
If required, other complementary wellbeing practitioners, such as slimming clubs (either WeightWatchers or Slimming World), the local NHS quit smoking support group, a physiotherapist, a masseur (for seated chair massages) or reflexologist can be invited to attend the event as well. Some of these services are provided free (slimming and smoking), however others will charge a small attendance fee.
Again, health education literature is available for employees to take away.
Employee assistance programmes (EAP)
MOHS does not directly offer EAP but works in association with a local EAP provider, Paycare, which offers a range of high quality products and services.
