minor cuts and wounds, stomach ache, indigestion, constipation, vomiting and diarrhoea.

Wirral Community NHS Trust welcomes its 4000th member



Wirral Community NHS Trust celebrated the signing of its 4000th member with staff from the Land Registry Office in Birkenhead this week. 


Membership is about involving local people in their community NHS trust.  The Trust has been attracting members for the last 12 months and was recruiting new members at the Land Registry when Alan Bainbridge, Operations Manager, became its 4000th member.


The Land Registry, along with many other local employers have benefitted from Wirral Community NHS Trust’s Working Well Health & Wellbeing Programme. The trust’s team provide free support to employers to help improve the health and wellbeing of their workforce. 


Philip Baines, Programme Manager – Health Promotion (Adults), said ‘The programme has helped lots of companies improve their employees’ health and feel more valued at work.  We provide tailored sessions to suit each organisation’s needs.’


Alan Bainbridge said ‘The Working Well Health & Wellbeing Programme has helped our workforce become healthier and our managers more able to deal with issues like workplace stress.  I am really pleased to be a member of Wirral Community NHS Trust.  I’m looking forward to finding out more about the health service works and I think it’s important that people on Wirral are able to have a say in their NHS.’


David Hammond, Membership and Engagement Manager at the Trust said ‘Anyone living in Wirral aged 13+ can join our membership for free.  Our regular magazine tells members what’s going on and there are events and activities for those who want to get more involved.  We’ll have our first governor elections later this year, where members will be able to vote for people to represent their local area within the Trust.’


You can become a member of Wirral Community NHS Trust online www.wirralct.nhs.uk, or by calling 0151 514 2452.  To find out more about how the Working Well Health & Wellbeing Programme can help your employees call 0151 630 8383.
