NHS Lanarkshire up for award 

National Business Awards nomination for health board 


Hugh Sweeney, NHS Lanarkshire’s healthy working lives manager, said: “It is a great achievement to be chosen as finalists for this award ceremony" 

Improving the health of staff has led to NHS Lanarkshire being nominated for a prestigious national business prize.

NHS Lanarkshire has been chosen as finalists in the Health Work and Wellbeing category of the National Business Awards.

This event is the UK’s premier cross-industry awards programme for both private and public sector organisations.

Other finalists in this category include E.ON, DVLA, Admiral Group, National Grid and Atlantic Inertial Systems.

Hugh Sweeney, NHS Lanarkshire’s healthy working lives manager, said: “It is a great achievement to be chosen as finalists for this award ceremony.

“This is testimony to all the work carried out by the NHS Lanarkshire colleagues, including occupational health staff, managers and all other staff who have worked hard to improve their own and other peoples’ lifestyles for the benefit of their health.”

The Health Work and Wellbeing category is for organisations who have improved the health and wellbeing of their workforce by:

  • maintaining a safe and healthy working environment beyond legal obligations
  • promoting healthy lifestyle choices
  • supporting staff with a health condition to remain in work or to return to work; and
  • promoting positive wellbeing and management practices throughout the organisation

The National Business Awards 2009 will take place on Tuesday 10 November at the Grosvenor House Hotel in London.

More than 1200 guests are expected including finalists, judges, business leaders and entrepreneurs.

Newsnight presenter Kirsty Wark will be hosting the ceremony with BBC’s business editor Robert Peston the guest speaker.
