Our NHS is made up of 1.3 million people who care for the people of this country with skill, compassion and dedication. We must make the NHS an employer of excellence – valuing, supporting, developing and investing in our people. There are also those who have worked, during this time, have been affected outside of the NHS and we recognise that.

We are the NHS: People Plan 2020/21 – action for us all sets out what our NHS people can expect from their leaders and from each other. It builds on the creativity and drive shown by our NHS people in their response, to date, to the Covid-19 pandemic. It focuses on how we must all continue to look after each other and foster a culture of inclusion and belonging, as well as take action to grow our workforce, train our people, and work together differently to deliver patient care. Initiatives like Keeping Well are here to help and support those in accordance with this.

A list of resources for wellbeing available to NHS staff can be found at the link below. There is a range of resources from financial advice to events that are happening at the moment.
