NHS Lothian Sign Up For Healthy Working Lives
Hospital workers are to be given a hand in staying fit and healthy by NHS Lothian.
The health board has signed up to the Healthy Working Lives programme, which gives NHS Lothian tips on how it can assist staff to stay in shape and free of illness.
Across the UK, about 34.5 million days are lost every year through illness caused or exacerbated by work.
The programme covers health promotion, occupational health and safety, health and the environment, mental health, community involvement and employability.
NHS Lothian will be able to work towards bronze, silver and gold awards by bringing in initiatives.
