Harvey Group have been providing health checks for their employees for over 10 years. We count our people as our greatest asset and richest resource and want to raise awareness and encourage a healthy lifestyle throughout our workforce.
The Chest, Heart and Stroke foundation are carrying out health checks throughout this week. Some of the health checks include blood pressure & cholesterol along with height and weight measurements. Advice is given to each member of staff, not only promoting a healthy lifestyle, but advising stress reducing techniques and offering “stop smoking” clinics.
The Chest, Heart and Stroke Foundation is celebrating 70 years preventing chest, heart and stroke illnesses in Northern Ireland and care for those already affected by them.
To achieve this, CHS offers support groups and programmes that provide a listening ear, emotional support, practical & comprehensive healthy school programmes, homeless support, health promotion services, talks and nurse health checks in the workplace and are committed to funding research into the prevention, diagnosis, treatment and care of chest, heart and stroke illnesses in Northern Ireland's Hospitals and Universities, which will benefit the people of Northern Ireland.
