STAFF members of the Tanoa International, Tanoa Rakiraki and Tanoa Skylodge hotels took time out for a health check-up in Nadi and Rakiraki earlier this week.

Reddy Group human resources manager Kavita Verma said the NCDs screening was an initiative to foster well-being.

"This initiative was taken by Tanoa hotels' human resource department to foster well-being among staff," she said.

"NCDs are on the rise and through a collaborative approach with the Health Ministry we decided to make an annual health check-up for our staff.

"The NCDs screening consisted of dental checks, pap smear, sugar and blood pressure tests plus nutrition advice from medical experts."

Mrs Verma said people in the tourism industry rarely had the opportunity to visit health centres or doctors until they got very ill.

"These services were brought right to our door steps to create awareness of healthy living by the health department."
