Health and wellbeing

Our award winning Health and Wellbeing Team are on hand to help you stay healthy at work and get the best work-life balance.

We love sports, complimentary therapies and leading our colleagues in healthy challenges and events. We’re also proud to offer a wide range of benefits so you can spoil yourself – or someone you love – every now and then.

We’ve introduced healthy hikes around Queen’s Hospital – our walks are the perfect place to get away from it all during your break, take in some fresh air and have a quick work out with a friend.
