As an employee-owned business, looking after our Partners is key. We’ve been investing in Partners health and wellbeing since 1929 – 19 years before the NHS – when we introduced free in-house health and medical services to all our Partners.
Today, this continues through our Partnership Health Services team, with over £20m invested annually. Partnership Health Services is a multidisciplinary clinical team which includes occupational health nurses, a doctor, physiotherapist, and wellbeing clinical lead.
