Launch of NHS Test and Trace
HM Government has now launched the NHS Test and Trace service to help reduce the spread of coronavirus and save lives.
To help support these key messages, there are now a range of materials available on the Campaign Resource Centre. You can download any of these resources to use for your workplace and help stop the spread of COVID-19.
You are also able to provide feedback on the resources by becoming a Campaign Resource Centre volunteer to help improve future resources that are created. Contact the team PHE via the link below.
Carers Week is an annual campaign to raise awareness of caring, highlight the challenges unpaid carers face and recognise the contribution they make to families and communities throughout the UK. It also helps people who don’t think of themselves as having caring responsibilities to identify as carers and access much-needed support.
This year (8th – 14th June), people across the country are continuing to face new challenges as a result of the coronavirus outbreak. Many people are taking on more caring responsibilities for their relatives and friends who are disabled, ill or older and who need support.
They need to be recognised for the difficulties they are experiencing, respected for all they are doing, and provided with information, support and understanding.
Wellbeing Team are Keeping Connected
With most of the team working from home we are keeping in touch with each other with virtual book clubs and competitions. We’ve had fun with guess the Easter bonnet, guess the playlist, artists impressions, and growing your own at home. Here is Nita Dodd and her family winning the Easter bonnet competition using only materials to hand during lockdown.
Let us know how you have been keeping connected with your team.
14th June is World Blood Donor Day. Every year, on 14 June, countries around the world celebrate World Blood Donor Day (WBDD). The event serves to raise awareness of the need for safe blood and blood products and to thank blood donors for their life-saving gifts of blood.
15th – 21st June is Men’s Health Week which helps to promote men’s health, bringing awareness to health issues that affect men disproportionately and focuses on getting men to become aware of problems they may have or could develop, and gain the courage to do something about it.
