The NHS workforce is, understandably, tired. A year and a half of managing a multi-wave pandemic, and now confronting the backlog of care that built up during the crisis, have taken a toll.
While there is optimism that the vaccine programme is making a difference, the winter is likely to bring a new wave of covid and potentially a wave of flu as well – all on top of conventional seasonal pressures.
In these circumstances, supporting staff wellbeing becomes a more pressing challenge than ever before. It is one which encompasses everything from supporting staff who are experiencing a mental health impact from the trauma they have experienced to trying to find ways to avoid burnout while maintaining service quality and patient safety.
So how can NHS organisations best support staff at all levels? What do the key areas of consideration need to be at this point in the global healthcare and economic crises? What specific wellbeing principles should we be leveraging?
This HSJ webinar, run in association with SAP, brought together a small panel of experts to discuss these important issues.
A recording of the session is now available.
