We often think of our body and mind as separate, but our physical health and our mental health are interconnected.
Physical health problems significantly increase our risk of developing mental health problems, and vice versa.
The following resources, links and services can be accessed to support your physical health.
If you are a Golden Jubilee employee suffering from a problem arising from your muscles or other soft tissue (e.g. ligaments), joints, bones or nerves, you can self-refer into the Occupational Health Physiotherapy service.
For details on how to do this, visit the Staffnet page.
In the meantime, the following self-help page on NHS Inform may be useful to help manage your symptoms before contact with the physiotherapist.
Occupational Physiotherapists Kathryn Wales and David Longhurst write a regular, expert blog with brilliant tips and advice on how to be healthy and active in sustainable ways.
Jubilee Active may even become virtual in the near future with a chance to ask Kathryn and David questions through a monthly Teams call - watch this space!

Cycle to work is a government approved salary sacrifice initiative, allowing employees to hire a bike and accessories up to the value of £4,000 for us, as your employer to encourage you to cycle to work. This hire is free from tax and national insurance contributions.
At the end of your hire period you have no automatic right of ownership, however, you may be offered the option to purchase the equipment at a value equivalent to the fair market value of the equipment. This will be based on the residual value of the equipment, in line with HRC guidance.
All the information staff need to sign up (with employer code) is on the Staff Benefits page of Staffnet.
Further information about this scheme can be found at https://www.cycle2work.info/
Staff who meet set criteria can apply to purchase an annual ZoneCard from Strathclyde Partnership for Transport (SPT), which helps you travel more sustainably and actively and will save you money.
This is not a salary sacrifice scheme but is offered as an interest-free loan, with this paid back in manageable monthly instalments direct from your salary.
Visit this Staffnet page for all the details.
