BMH helps staff to 'Be Well'
BMH has been awarded a share of the 'Be Well' fund, which was
set up by AWP to improve staff health and wellbeing. BMH's System
Leadership Team (SLT) successfully bid for money from the fund to
set up a Sports Programme for staff in the system.
SLT was granted the funds as the Sports Programme is accessible
to all staff and has the ability to be sustainable after the
funding source is used. Other successful bids included proposals
for yoga, a knitting and crochet group and a choir.
"The Sports Programme will enable staff from different services
across the system to connect and develop relationships and networks
which will assist them in their day-to-day roles," says Lucy
Morgan, system information and improvement manager at BMH.
SLT is now looking at a variety of potential sports to set up
after polling staff to ask their preferences. A trial of turn up
and play five-a-side football is starting at the end of this month
and the potential to hold netball and rounders leagues is also
If you are a member of staff at BMH and would like to take part
