Oasis opened in 2010 as an exclusive wellbeing Centre for NHS staff.
The demands of working in a hospital environment can leave staff with very little for anything else. Having an on-site fitness facility is convenient for employees to help look after themselves. Becoming a healthier, fitter workforce ultimately means providing a better health care service.
