Staff Learning Lunches

The Occupational Health Department host a series of health and wellbeing sessions for staff.  There will be one or more sessions per month during term time, each on a different topic related to health and wellbeing.  We have a variety of topics so hopefully there will be something for everyone.  

Here is what we have coming up...


March: Ovarian Cancer Awareness


Come and hear Ovacome volunteer Gill Kelly  describe her experience.  What she thought were symptoms of the menopause turned out to be ovarian cancer.  Now she has recovered and raising awareness has become an important part of her life.  She talks about the impact of her illness on her work and her family.

Ruth Grigg from the Ovacome charity will also be talking about the signs and symptoms, risk factors and when you should visit your GP. 

The session aims to give people information and confidence so they will seek help if they ever need it. So come and talk to Ovacome, ask us   questions, learn more and support our work.
