Examples of Our Work

Examples of our work

We use an evidence-based approach to all our interventions and can provide evidence of impact and improvement for all of our work.


In 2012 we ran the first regional photographic competition to promote wellbeing in communities across the North West of England using the Five Ways to Wellbeing as a framework. Over 1300 photographs were entered from people across the NW. Wellbeing calendar developed and printed. Competition judged by 5 professional international photographers. Winners photographs were displayed at community art cafe and gallery.


80% of staff interviewed as part of Boorman said their own health and well being had a direct impact on patient care. This programme is designed to deliver transformational change. Using 5 Ways to well-being as the framework and Large Scale Change (LSC) (see Plesek et al An introduction to the theory and practice of LSC and its relevance to the NHS) as the methodology we’re delivering a 9 month programme to 35 NHS Health and wellbeing leads to deliver transformation change in NHS Staff health and well being and ultimately improve patient care and experience. This is collabortion with Good Squared CIC, commissioned by NW HEE.

Maximising performance – it starts with you
Executive leadership programme

NHS CEOs participated in this programme run by one of our partners. Here’s what some of them had to say:

“The workshop has provided me with personal insight into how my personal well-being does impact on My performance. It has also given me some very practical skills and techniques to enable me to be Healthier and to perform even more effectively. This was particularly usefuln when I had to manage a very difficult issue at work which I know I was able to handle even more effectively by drawing on the knowledge I had gained through the experience I have also shared my learning with my immediate team and they have found some of the practical Advice beneficial. In summary this has been a very cost effective way of ensuring that I am a happier, Healthier and even more effective leader.”
CEO NHS Mental Health Trust

“My driver to access this course was to identify which was likely to kill me first – being a CEO in today’s NHS or simply, lifestyle. For me it was life style which won! So I have prioritised where I can, my work life balance, raised my own awareness of stress and how to counterbalance that and take care of myself a little better than before.”
CEO NHS Foundation Trust Hospital
