Answer a series of questions and rate your organisation as red, amber or green (RAG status) this will allow you to quickly understand your status against the framework and help you identify and prioritise the areas to focus on.

For each part of the framework you will need to answer a series of questions and rate your organisation as red, amber or green (RAG status) this will allow you to:

  • Quickly understand your status against the framework
  • Help you identify and prioritise the areas to focus on

How do I use the tool?

This tool should be used alongside the Health and Wellbeing Framework document, which explains each of the 14 areas and includes detailed guidance on making the business case, planning implementation and evaluating your health and wellbeing programme.

The tool is divided into four sections:

  • Enablers
  • Mental health
  • Musculoskeletal (MSK)
  • Healthy lifestyles

To complete the diagnostic process you will need to work through the questions in the sections, this can be completed separately or as a whole. You can record actions and comments as you progress to help with planning. We recommend completing the tool with your health and wellbeing steering group (or equivalent) and board lead for staff health and wellbeing. The tool includes a handy dashboard which summarises your organisation’s status against the framework.
