The Walton Centre NHS Foundation Trust combated their fragmented approach to health and wellbeing with a new strategy, ‘Work Well the Walton Way’ – a comprehensive action plan tackling all areas. The key to the strategy and action plan’s success was the involvement of staff and unions in its development and implementation. The trust held an open day which was supported by local business partners, both private and public sector, and attended by over 300 members of staff.
The strategy’s success was also evidenced in a staff sickness reduction of over 7 per cent, the staff survey results and the trust being awarded the Investors in People (IIP) Health and Wellbeing Good Practice Framework, the first trust in the north of England to receive the award.
