HEALTH & WELLBEING STRATEGY
Supt HRpresented this paper to provide SCT with a proposed sustainable 5 year Health & Wellbeing Strategy for consideration and launch during March 2013. The strategy would be delivered across the Force at District and Department level and be underpinned by a range of in house and externally provided services/initiatives.
The following recommendations were put forward:
1. To endorse the proposed strategic intent of the Health and Wellbeing Strategy, (Appendix 1) to be incorporated within the Chief Constable’s Vision for the Force, and linked to the People Strategy.
2. To endorse the underpinning Health & Wellbeing model (Appendix 2) and 2 phase Delivery Plan for 2013-18 (Appendix 3).
3. To report and monitor at corporate level on Health & Wellbeing support via the strategic Health & Wellbeing Committee (formerly Health & Safety committee) on a quarterly basis, and at SCT, JNCC and the Policing Board, as required.
RESOLVED – SCT agreed these recommendations but with the expectancy that in a year’s time, a short paper to review where we are in terms of an action plan is brought back to SCT. (Action – HR)
