Health & Wellbeing for BVA Members

Whilst it can be a rewarding profession, as a vet or veterinary nurse, caring for animals can be challenging too – mentally as well as physically. Accidents, injuries, back problems from lifting, not to mention mental health issues, which have increased due to the Pandemic, all combine to make life very stressful at times. All of these issues are not uncommon within the Veterinary profession.

However, the good news is that just as you care for your clients and their pets, Lloyd & Whyte care, not only for your finances, but also for your health and wellbeing. That is why we have launched our Wellbeing Matters programme, to support you in managing your own physical, mental, and social wellbeing and the welfare of your colleagues.

You can now access a range of health and wellbeing-based products and services for individuals and businesses; supporting you to feel better at home and at work.

Portal for online access 24/7

Our free Wellbeing Matters portal gives you and your employees easy, 24/7 access to over 200 hours of content, including blogs, articles, and advice, in addition to seminars, workshops, through to videos and podcasts, covering a wide range of topics such as mental health, nutrition and diet, recipes, demos, and fitness plans, and information, designed for all levels. You can even track your own fitness and daily activity, plus eating patterns and calory intake. You can also benefit from lifestyle e-learning. The platform offers smart searching to easily access the content you are looking for, which you can then easily organise; where you want it, how you want it, because we appreciate that your time is precious.

EAP Programme

According to Spectrum Life, a leading provider of Employee Assistance programs;

  • 49% of employees lose an hour of productivity or more each day due to stress
  • Almost half of all employees cite stress and personal issues as the most common reason for absence
  • Companies lose as much as £611.00 per employee annually due to unscheduled absenteeism.

To combat these risks, many employers provide EAPs that include assessment, short-term problem resolution and referral services for employees and their families. These services provide tremendous benefits for employers, including lower medical costs, reduced turnover and absenteeism, higher employee productivity and improved employee engagement. Having an EAP also demonstrates to employees that their employer cares about their health and well-being.

Now more than ever, we recognise that everyone needs support, no matter who you are.

Our Employee Assistance Program (EAP) is there to proactively help you, your family your employees and their families and your members with access to confidential telephone counsellors available 24/7 and the option to arrange face to face consultations, which currently take place via a video conference call.

We can provide a broad range of mental health promotion activities and events to help prioritise and support your mental wellbeing, something that is particularly relevant during such challenging times.
