The name & concept of Lemur Health was born from a television documentary showcasing the culture and behaviour of the lemur community working together for the good of the colony. Lemurs taking care of lemurs, unrelated to themselves, produced a safe, collaborative and highly productive group.
The fundamental aim of Lemur Health is to take care and enhance your employees' physical and mental health through robust workplace interventions. Creating a healthy and people focused culture enhances wellbeing leading to better engagement and productivity for your business.

Our Mission Statement:
Good work is good for health and so we will work with you to:
I am a qualified nurse specialising in workplace wellbeing. I have a BA Hons in English and Media Communication with my research focused on identity and how cultural representations in society influences, not just socio-economic, but also health outcomes.
The pandemic has shone a spotlight on the inequality of health outcomes suffered by the ethnic diverse communities, experiencing a disproportionate number of deaths. Other communities, within the protected characteristics, are also at a higher risk to serious ill health and death.
Health Care Professionals learn how to manage the risk of infections and prevent transmission to other patients, colleagues, and family. They are taught the chain of infection and adopt the safety behaviours and practises needed to break the chain to prevent infections. The fatality rate within the diverse ethnic care professionals was higher than any other group leading to Public Health England's report identifying structural racism within the NHS as a factor influencing the appalling statistics
Workplace education on the chain of infection and personal and business consequences of not breaking it will help introduce a behaviour and attitude change to the risk of contracting Covid-19. It will also support employees and families in the new ways of living and working geared towards an understanding of the outcomes to protect all and maintain a safe place to live and work.
Lemur Health offers consultancy and delivers psychoeducation and management training as part of the overall health and wellbeing agenda to introduce a truly inclusive approach to health and wellbeing at work.
