WINNER: King’s College Hospital FT  Covid-19 Staff Support and Wellbeing Programme

King’s College Hospital was successful in rapidly implementing a whole-hospital staff wellbeing response, bringing together multiple disciplines to proactively manage the impact of covid-19 on the 14,000-person workforce. There was an overwhelmingly positive response to the programme, exemplified in staff feedback: “This is the first time I have felt supported while working in the NHS” and “The initial surge of covid-19 felt like staff wellbeing was a true priority.”

Partnered byNHS-Employers

The programme has been embedded and sustained by KCH and ultimately has benefited its patients and carers in the quality of care they are receiving, says the trust.
