Cancer Awareness Month
October is Cancer Awareness Month and Admiral Group’s Ministry of Health (MOH) has joined forces with Tenovus Cancer Care, St Joseph’s Hospital in Newport and Public Heath Wales to raise awareness and provide advice and to support to its staff.
MOH is a dedicated health and wellbeing programme run by staff representatives from across the business that offers a wide array of initiatives and services for Admiral employees. As well as providing daily fresh fruit, local gym passes, subsidised on-site flu jabs, head massages and much more, the programme runs awareness campaigns throughout the year.
During October, Tenovus will be visiting Admiral’s offices in Cardiff, Newport and Swansea to offer staff free personal health checks, male focused workshops focusing on the three key male cancers (penile, prostrate and testicular) and they will also be running further smoking cessation workshops. Staff will also be able to get their hands on lots of free information to download electronically.
MOH has worked closely with St Joseph’s Hospital since 2015 and the hospital has previously run Breast Cancer Awareness Sessions and Breast Check Clinics for staff at the office. Last week MOH representatives were invited to the Cupcakes and Cupsizes event, which promoted the services offered at St Joseph’s Hospital and raised funds for Breast Cancer Care Cymru.
MOH was awarded Gold in the Corporate Health Standard run by the Welsh Government through in February 2017 for the high standard of health and wellbeing of our staff. We were first awarded the Gold Standard in 2014.
