Pilot of wellbeing platform benefitting thousands of NHS staff

The pilot of a new online employee health and wellbeing platform is benefitting thousands of NHS keyworkers in London this winter.

Juice is the backbone of a new NHS cooperative launched in partnership with HR and wellbeing specialists Everyday Juice Limited.

The platform brings people together virtually through common interest and is aimed at promoting the mental and physical wellbeing of employees, boosting happiness, satisfaction, and retention.

Through the Juice NHS Cooperative, invested trusts will be able to share relevant wellbeing provision with one another, allowing employees to come together for shared learning, and online activities and events.

Gary Butterfield, co-founder of Everyday Juice, said: “Stricter lockdown measures have created increased risk that people will become lonely and isolated, so investing in a health and wellbeing platform which brings individuals and organisations together to engage is a major step in the right direction.

“The Juice NHS Cooperative platform has really come into its own over the last few months, so it’s great that we can bring more individuals and NHS organisations together to share resources and broaden the offer.”

In February, West London NHS Trust and Central and North West London NHS Foundation Trust (CNWL) teamed up to pilot the platform.

Camden and Islington NHS Foundation Trust has now embarked on the pilot scheme.

Beverley Flint, head of business partnerships (Wellbeing) at Camden and Islington NHS Foundation Trust, said: “When we learned of this wellbeing cooperative between CNWL and West London NHS Trusts, Camden and Islington NHS Foundation were keen to get involved.

“As everything is online at the moment shared access makes a lot of sense, but when we are allowed to meet in person the potential for shared activities is endless.

“Having shared wellbeing resources that our employees can access based on where they work or live will be a real bonus for all.”
