Mindfulness - taking an active approach to looking after your mind

A diverse range of participants are attracted to mindfulness courses from students and parents of young children to corporate directors and healthcare professionals.  People attend for a variety of reasons - be it simply taking the time to prioritise their wellbeing or as a complementary approach to managing a variety of health concerns.  

As part of our commitment to staff health and wellbeing we will be running a FREE session in Bridlington in July.

Health Checks

The health and lifestyle check provides a comprehensive set of checks that aims to help individuals identify and monitor areas of their health and behaviour that may affect their current and future health.

The health check lasts one hour and is available to staff employed within the Trust.  Priority will be given to those over 40 years of age and/or shift workers.

The appointment includes:

  • Basic body measurements - height, weight, waist circumference and body composition (this will require you to stand bare foot on a set of scales)
  • Resting blood pressure - systolic, diastolic and resting heart rate
  • Resting blood measures - total cholesterol, HDL and glucose from a fingertip blood sample
  • Lifestyle discussion and assessment of risk of diabetes and cardiovascular disease.

Appointments are available at York, Scarborough and Bridlington Hospitals.
