New wellbeing events and services

As we continue to support your health and wellbeing, we are pleased to announce a number of webinars and events taking place over the coming months.

If you have any questions, please get in touch with the Wellbeing Team via wellbeing@argyll-bute.gov.uk

 

Active Care Service

Available from 1 October 2022.

The Active Care service from Health Assured provides effective support on the very first day managers receive a fit note from an employee citing a stress related absence.

This new service, delivered by impartial clinicians aims to understand individual needs and help identify any triggers they may have. It will also look at prescribed treatments and offer recommendations for support.

The Wellbeing Team will contact employees who are off with a stress related absence to see if they would like to take up this new service and if in agreement, will then complete the Active Care referral form and submit to Health Assured. 

Health Assured will arrange for an experienced clinician to contact the employee and complete a structured consultation.   

Subject to the employee consent, the referring manager will receive a report with the consultation outcome and recommended steps.

Wellbeing Programme

We are pleased to launch another new initiative from 27 October 2022.
The council has partnered with Wellbeing People to offer a Recalibrate Wellbeing Programme.  This programme delivers transformational results and focuses on a range of lifestyle subjects, designed to help you build healthy habits that support positive health and wellbeing.

The online course via Microsoft Teams covers 12 coach led training modules lasting an hour each session.  As this is a pilot, places are limited to 100 on a first come, first served basis.  

The first session starts on Thursday 27th October 2022 at 11am and there is a commitment needed to be able to participate in all 12 sessions.  Please email wellbeing@argyll-bute.gov.uk to register your interest or for more information.

Please note the current programme is fully subscribed but we hope to be able to run a further course later in the year.
