Nuffield Health has launched a series of bespoke health assessments for UK businesses as it looks to help tackle work-related illness.

Four personalised health assessment modules have been developed for employees following research by the not-for-profit healthcare organisation into current and future trends of workers’ health concerns.

More than 2,000 participants were surveyed and the top three health concerns were being overweight, fitness and emotional wellbeing, with stress and depression stated as the two key factors.

Weight management, fitness and building resilience are three of the modules to be introduced. Concerns from both men and women at the risk of developing cancer has resulted in the creation of a cancer risk prevention module. 

Around 23.3m days are lost due to work-related ill health according to the Health and Safety Executive and work-related stress, anxiety and depression contributes to 35 per cent of all work ill health cases.

Nuffield Health physiologists and doctors will continue to undertake existing tests such as blood pressure checks, glucose, cholesterol and body composition, as part of its Lifestyle, Female, 360 or 360+ health assessments. In addition employees will receive support and coaching in the option of their choice, helping individuals identify risk, set goals and support behaviour change.

Jay Brewer, head of clinical wellbeing at Nuffield Health said: “Our new range of bespoke health assessment options will help businesses deliver the next generation of workplace wellbeing initiatives, offering employees the chance to truly personalise their health assessments. It’s important for us to launch these new products so that employees can choose what’s right for them and get the most out of their time with our physiologists and doctors.”

The assessments complement other Nuffield Health services, including on-site gyms, physiotherapy, occupational health, GP services and emotional wellbeing.
