Healthy lifestyle support - Everyone Health Staffordshire
Everyone Health Staffordshire - Healthy Lifestyle Service
Everyone Health Staffordshire offer a free healthy lifestyle service to Staffordshire residents, to help them lose weight, give up smoking and get more active. They also support people who feel lonely or isolated, as well as providing NHS Health Checks. Please note that some restrictions do apply, so please see their website for more information.
Here's some feedback from some of their happy clients:
Joan, 63, from Newcastle, accessed the stop smoking service:
"I had smoked for 42 years. I wanted to quit because of my health and for my family. I have now quit for 12 weeks and I feel a lot better in myself. I'm able to breathe easier and I also have a lot more energy. I have saved over £300 since I've quit. I found the Everyone Health service brilliant. They really helped me a lot, providing regular contact and support, as well as medication. I'm really happy now I'm a non-smoker".
Wayne, 53, accessed the weight management service:
"The Everyone Health programme has been beneficial, as I have been receiving weekly emails with helpful information that I can access at any time. The weekly phone call support is also really encouraging, especially in the early part of the course, as it helps get your mind focused to carry on. I have also really liked the online exercise classes as there has been plenty of variety and I learn new things every week. I have lost weight and I feel much healthier".
Everyone Health Staffordshire - Healthy Workplace Service
They are also offering a healthy workplace service to some businesses in Staffordshire (excluding Stoke-on-Trent), to support employees to stay healthy.
They are offering free support to help employees:
All three of these programmes include 1-1 calls with an experienced practitioner, who will support each participant with individual goals, including carrying out initial assessments and a 12 week follow up.
The programmes run with minimal impact on your business, with the flexibility to offer the programme within or outside of your business operating hours. All programmes operate virtually and run for 12 weeks. Update: From September 2021, on-site face to face support for your staff will also be available.

They're back! On-site NHS Health Checks for staff
Everyone Health are working with businesses across Staffordshire (excluding Stoke-on-Trent) to ensure that employees can receive their free NHS Health Check.
NHS Health Checks are available to people aged 40-74, who do not have a pre-existing condition, and have not had the check completed within the last 5 years.
Interested businesses with a high proportion of employees over 40, can contact Everyone Health to arrange an on-site NHS Health Check Day for staff. The check involves a blood pressure check and BMI calculation, as well as a finger prick blood test for high cholesterol. The full NHS Health Check takes around 30 minutes to complete.
Everyone Health will provide an appointment schedule before the day, allowing employees to book a specific time slot. This helps to minimise disruption to the working day. All staff receive a record of their results, as well as tailored lifestyle advice in line with their readings, and further free healthy lifestyle support could be available depending on their eligibility.
For members of staff who do not meet the eligibility criteria, including those who live outside of Staffordshire, Everyone Health can provide a mini ‘Health MOT’. This includes a blood pressure check, BMI calculation and tailored lifestyle advice.
Everyone Health have worked with several large businesses across Staffordshire, including: HellermannTyton, Florette, Hobbycraft Distribution, Capita, Holland and Barrett, Drayton Manor, Alton Towers and Pentalver. Hannah Burgess, HR Manager at Drayton Manor said, “We were really pleased with the uptake of employees wanting to have a health check carried out and feel that the event was a real success. We had lots of positive feedback”.
To arrange an on-site NHS Health Check Day, call Louise Needham on 07849 092152 or email LouiseNeedham@everyonehealth.co.uk or alternatively call Emma Mennell on 07849 092173 or email EmmaMennell@everyonehealth.co.uk
