|LET’S TALK ABOUT MENOPAUSE – FREE WEBINAR
Healthy Workplaces Derbyshire has teamed up with Henpicked, a national specialist menopause training provider, to deliver a free 90 minute interactive webinar. This is a free event open to all Derbyshire employees.
If you, a member of your family, friend or colleague are experiencing the menopause and want to know more then this free educational and engaging session, you will learn:
- What menopause is, how to recognise the symptoms, and how someone may be affected by menopause.
- The options available to manage symptoms and long-term health.
- What support is available and how to access it, both at work and outside work.
Menopause can have an effect on us all, whether we’re experiencing menopause directly or supporting a family member, friend or colleague.While some will sail through menopause, 3 in 4 experience symptoms and as many as 1 in 4 have serious symptoms. However, around half have never consulted a healthcare professional about their menopause. Research also shows that the majority of those experiencing the menopause are unwilling to discuss menopause-related health problems with their managers or ask for any support they may need.

|CHAIR JOINED UP CARE DERBYSHIRE (JUCD) INTEGRATED CARE STRATEGY – ONLINE EVENTS MAY 23 (INC. BSL INTERPRETATION)
The purpose of the Joined Up Care Derbyshire (JUCD) Integrated Care Strategy is to set out how Local Authority, NHS, Healthwatch, and Voluntary Sector organisations will work together to improve the health of Derby and Derbyshire citizens, and further the transformative change needed to tackle system health and care challenges.
From this strategy 3 Key Areas of Focus have been identified including the three key areas of focus spanning prevention, early intervention, and service delivery:
- Start Well – To improve outcomes and reduce inequalities in health, social, emotional, and physical development of children in the early years (0-5) via school readiness
- Stay Well – To improve prevention and early intervention of the 3 main clinical causes of ill health and early death in the JUCD population – circulatory disease, respiratory disease, and cancer
- Age Well and Die Well – To enable older people to live healthy, independent lives at their normal place of residence for as long as possible. Integrated and strength-based services will prioritise health and wellbeing, help people in a crisis to remain at home where possible, and maximise a return to independence following escalation.
As an introduction to each of these key areas, they are creating “briefing and discussion” events. See the visual above for details of each event and how to book, or click on the link below to take you to their engagement platform for details on each of the events and links on how to book:
