A large local employer was keen to promote the importance of wellbeing amongst their staff. With the recent media coverage of the rise in diabetes in the UK and the huge burden on the NHS the employer felt that diabetic screening would be well received.
Diabetes is a condition that affects primarily people over the age of 40 and is a major factor in heart disease, strokes and cancer. Diabetes is significantly affected by lifestyle factors such as being overweight, insufficient exercise and high blood pressure.
WorkFuture Ltd were asked to run diabetic screening sessions involving a simple finger prick test for blood glucose, over a number of sites. The response was very positive and the staff greeted the initiative with enthusiasm.
