Aneurin Bevan University Health Board wins Health Standard Platinum Award

We are delighted to announce that Aneurin Bevan University Health Board (ABUHB) has been successful in securing the Health Standards highest award thanks in part to the support of the Llanfrechfa Grange Walled Garden project.

The Corporate Health Standard is the national mark of quality for health and wellbeing in the work place. The standard is designed to promote a continuous journey of good practice and improvement and can be used by organisations to improve the health and wellbeing of their employees.

At platinum level ABUHB has demonstrated its commitment to supporting not only their employees, but other organisations and the local community. This involves a range of activities including the promotion of partnership working, sharing knowledge and promoting community engagement.

On Thursday 10th December ABUHB hosted the Welsh Government assessors at the Serennu Children’s Centre in Newport and were delighted to be able to include the Walled Garden Project as one of its showcase projects for the assessment day. This project is a great example of how community engagement can provide benefits for everyone involved. By making the garden available to the community and supporting the community to shape and run the garden for the benefit of the local community it has the potential to be so much more than just a garden managed within a hospital site.

The project team leading the Platinum application would like to thank everyone involved in the walled garden for their support in demonstrating the value of working together.
