Vinod Patel Group had its 75 staff at Laucala Beach undergo health screening to create awareness on Non-Communicable Diseases (NCD).

Human Resources Manager, Manjula Perera said they were promoting a healthy work force environment starting last week.

“In the long term this will benefit the organisation to have a healthy workforce that will contribute to productivity,” Mr Perera said.

He said most workers were not able to go for a regular check-up that was why they brought the screening to the office.

Vinod Patel Group will be doing a nationwide health screening at all their retail outlets in the upcoming week to over 1000 staff.

The screening is a collaboration between Vinod Patel and the Ministry of Health.

Six zone nurses from the Valelevu Health Centre including a doctor were part of the health screening at their Laucala Beach headquarters on Friday.
