Another new collaboration within the healthcare sector sees Healix Health Services enhancing its employer wellbeing services, as it announces a partnership with HCB Group.
HCB Group is one of the ‘pioneers of early intervention services in the UK and Ireland’, claims Healix; HCB’s Employee Health management services will be incorporated into Healix’s service offering, which aims to supply employers with ‘hands-on practical expertise’, ensuring that employees with any health issues are supported from day one.
Nick Bushell, CEO of Healix Health Services, said: “HCB Group has a great reputation in the employee wellbeing area. Its expertise will add value to the Healix Healthcare trusts we already operate for businesses of all sizes.”
The new partnership provides Healix Health Services clients with access to HCB Group’s nurse-led employee health management service, which offers ‘traditional’ Occupational Health services, including vaccinations and immunisations, health surveillance and health assessments. It also offers specially-negotiated services, which includes new employee screening, case management, absence managements (long-term sick/ill health retirement) and specialist assessments.
“The partnership with Healix provides HCB with a well-respected platform upon which to blend our Employee Health Management services in support of the Healix Healthcare Trusts,” said Jim Harris, Managing Director, HCB Group. “HCB aspires to redefine the traditional Occupational Health model, and this valuable partnership will help accelerate our growth in this area.”
