posted by Jay Webb on October 9, 2019

Jay Webb Consultancy were proud supporters of Alex’s Wish Golf Day, it was lovely to receive a thank you email from the team…

Hi Jay

I just wanted to say a huge thank you for sponsoring a hole at our Golf Day, the day raised over £7,000 which is an amazing amount!  The sun was shining and all the golfers had a great day.

It is fantastic, with your help, that we are able to invest into ground breaking research.  We have just gone to human clinical trial in the Gene Therapy project that we have invested in and the preliminary results have been positive so far.  This is a huge step in terms of where we, as a community, need to get to and we wouldn’t be able to do it without your support.

Kind regards

Zoe Edwards

Event and Fundraising Manager

Health at work: prevention is better than cure

posted by Jay Webb on

Rachel Suff, Public Policy Adviser, Employment Relations at CIPD calls for employers to do more to create healthier working environments so prevent mental and physical illnesses for staff.

Simplyhealth’s foreword in the CIPD and Simplyhealth’s recently published annual health and well-being survey report makes a crucial point in citing Public Health England CEO Duncan Selbie: ‘The NHS 10-year plan is a huge opportunity, but it will be judged by how it prioritises prevention. We must of course treat illness but even smarter would be to prevent it. With 40% of all poor health being preventable and 60% of 60-year-olds experiencing at least one long-term condition, this has to be a no brainer.’
