A new series of Wellbeing MOTs run at BSUH has helped staff establish key information about their health.
The test, which takes between 15 to 30 minutes, involves standing on a sophisticated set of scales that measures body composition.
Gary Pearson, BSUH Fire Safety Advisor, was among 40 members of staff who took up the offer of a Wellbeing MOT.
“It’s useful because it’s an objective look at where you are and where you could be,” Gary said. “And it’s carried out in a relaxed and supportive way. I’d be interested to see how the profile from this test changes over time. I know people say they are too busy to do this, but we’re all busy. This takes just 15-20 minutes. It’s much easier and quicker than having it done at your GP surgery.”
