Activities and sessions throughout the week include:

  • Wellbeing learning lunch
  • Healthy recipe sharing
  • Menopause support
  • Men’s health MOT
  • Mini Health Checks from the Bolton NHS FT Health Improvement Practitioners (HIPs)
  • Chaplaincy support dog walk

Tracy Iles, Family Care Division Director of Operations at Bolton NHS Foundation Trust, said:

Making sure our staff are well looked after is key to providing the highest levels of care for our patients and the communities of Bolton.

“Our wellbeing week is highlighting how we all need to take care of our own health and wellbeing and should give practical advice to improve physical health as well as providing opportunities for people to discuss their mental health.

It includes maternity, neonates sexual health and gynaecology teams, as well as hospital and community based children’s clinical services, 0-19 Public Health Nursing, Paediatric and Women’s health Allied Health Professional services and Paediatric Learning Disability.
