Following on from previously successful worksite ‘Living well clinics’, we again held another worksite clinic at Skellerup Industries Limited.

The positive response from both staff and management is reinforcing the need for a service such as this to ensure access to health screenings that are vital for better health outcomes and health literacy for those that currently have limited access.

The clinic provided basic health assessments including blood pressure, blood sugar, cholesterol screening, women’s health screening and smoking cessation. Included in this was access to drug and alcohol support and screening for domestic violence.

We continue to see the support from factory management who recognise this as a vital aspect of health and well-being for all staff. The clinic included three nurses, and a smoking cessation practitioner who saw 38 staff throughout the day. A further clinic has been booked for another 14 staff who registered. As with the other factories, this will be an annual event.
