Improving The Lives Of Chester NHS Staff. This wellbeing programme is for any NHS Worker who needs support improving their physical, mental and emotional wellbeing. Specifically to reduce anxiety, build mental strength, develop resilience and empower our amazing NHS employees. Physically to be at optimum health, improve overall wellbeing physically and mentally. This programme will be delivered at the Rage Fitness Wellbeing Centre based in Blacon, Chester. This programme has supported and helped over 1400 people to improve overall wellbeing. Below are a couple of links to podcasts relating to 'Success Stories' of NHS workers who have been through this wellbeing programme: With your support we will be able to support many more people!

Why it's a great idea:

During the Pandemic we at the Rage Fitness Wellbeing Group quickly identified our amazing NHS Staff needed support. For example. One of our services users (a nurse) went off to have a baby (during the pandemic), The baby was still birth and she was asked to return to work as they was short staffed. She didn't want to let her colleagues or patients down so she went back (too soon) She had a breakdown in work, lost all confidence in care and wanted to 'end it all'. Times this by 1399 more people (with different situations) but still very very low people physically, mentally or emotionally you can see the need. We created the NHS Wellbeing Programme and supported a 1000 NHS staff completely free. Now we are at the stage where we have a back log of people needing our support but not enough resource to help. We know the impact this has, we know the need and we can help. Help us them who help you. The nurse?, They are now healthy, happy and has a new baby boy! Success Story!

  • Buy equipment to support people to improve physically, mentally and emotionally..
