Healthy workplaces for all ages

The ageing workforce

Kim Sunley, the staff-side chair of the NHS Staff Council Health, Safety and Wellbeing Partnership Group (HSWPG) and senior employment relations adviser at the Royal College of Nursing, has written a blog about the importance of making the NHS a healthy workplace for all ages.

The introduction of the 2015 pension scheme arrangements in the NHS saw a change in occupational pension age, as it was set equal to a person’s state pension age for the first time. In October 2015, the HSWPG launched The Ageing Workforce: checklist to assess organisational readiness as a first step to support employers implement these recommendations. HSWPG has taken the occupational health, safety and wellbeing indicators from the working longer group’s organisational readiness checklist to define ‘what good looks like’ and provide further support around implementation.
