The Health and Work Development Unit (HWDU) at the Royal College of Physicians published the findings from the second round of the national organisational audit of the implementation of NICE public health guidance for the workplace in January 2014. This national organisational audit had an overall aim of supporting staff health in line with the evidence based guidelines developed by NICE. The audit was open to all NHS trusts in England, with 73% of trusts participating. The findings showed that overall performance has improved between rounds although there is still a great deal of variation between trusts suggesting room for continued improvement. The audit was supported and funded by NHS Employers.
