WHAT TYPE OF SERVICE DO WE PROVIDE? 

Amethyst Health Screening provides health and wellbeing programmes for your staff at your school/academy/university site. Educational organisions use us to provide a workplace benefit or reward for their teachers, but they also use us to help increase workplace productivity, team spirit and lower sickness absence. We carry out Health MOT’s which include checking blood pressure, cholesterol and glucose and we also give lifestyle advice looking at exercise, alcohol and smoking. back to questions    back to menu  

 

WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN US AND OCCUPATIONAL HEALTH? 

Setting up a health and wellbeing programme for your teachers with us is different from organizing an occupational health company to visit your school/academy/university. Occupational health amongst other things looks at the health and safety of employees in relationship to their ability to do their job, i.e. are they fit enough to climb scaffolding, drive a lorry or is their health suffering because of their job. We look at certain aspects of a teachers individual health and offer advice on how they can improve it, but we do not assess their fitness regarding their job. back to questions    back to menu

 

WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS FOR YOU AND YOUR SCHOOL/ACADEMY/UNIVERSITY? 

The benefits of a health screening programme for your organisation far outweigh the initial cost. It has been proven that looking after your staff's health and wellbeing is key to school/academy/university success. Having happy, healthy, motivated teachers creates a positive learning environment for students. This in turn can improve student performance and ultimately your organization's ratings. In addition, looking after your staff's health increases productivity, reinforces team spirit and helps lower sickness absence along with many other benefits, as seen below. back to questions    back to menu

WHY ARE HEALTH SCREENINGS ESSENTIAL FOR EVERYBODY? 

Taking care of your health is important and having a health MOT can help you to address your personal risks early and learn how to lower them. in fact 80-90% of cardiovascular diseases such as stroke and heart attack and health problems like diabetes are preventable. if we own a vehicle we know how important it is to MOT it to avoid needless breakdowns and accidents. If we have regular health MOT's it can help us to avoid needless health disasters. Prevention really is better than cure.

 

Taking care of yourself will result in fewer days off work, better health and ultimately where possible a longer life.

 

We provide health education and expertise about heart attack, stroke and diabetes and how to lower individual risk, which will in turn lead to improvements in both work practice and lifestyle.

 

Two out of three people have high cholesterol and an estimated one in three have high blood pressure without realising it. High blood pressure and raised cholesterol are some of the things that are responsible for heart attack and stroke. An irregular heartbeat can also be symptomless and can be fatal if left undiagnosed. 

 

Having an annual MOT is a positive thing to do and may even save your life.  

 

We get excellent feedback from those that have used us, why not take a look at our testimonials?
