Waist Watchers 2012

Further to the success of this health promotion campaign at the start of the year, the Occupational Health Service is once again offering Waist Watchers for University staff.

Fifty appointments are available throughout June for University staff to come along for a mini health M.O.T.

This 30 minute appointment will be with one of our Occupational Health Nurses. The primary aim will be to look for early signs or indicators of heart disease and diabetes and will involve height, weight, waist measurement, blood pressure/pulse and urinalysis (all tests/measurements are completely optional).

Appropriate advice can then be given on weight loss, alcohol intake and smoking cessation. Signposting to other organisations or referral to a GP may be indicated with appropriate nurse follow up where necessary.

General tips and pointers for improving health and lifestyle can also be discussed, such as mechanisms for dealing with pressure and stress, work-life balance, sleep, resilience and assertiveness.

To pre-book your appointment slot please contact Occupational Health on ext 3187.
