Camden and Islington NHS Foundation Trust – Using survey data to inform health and wellbeing strategy

30 / 04 / 2015

Camden and Islington NHS Foundation Trusts staff survey results revealed that the trust had low scores in relation to staff wellbeing, work-related stress being a key issue. There was also:

  • low uptake in trust benefit schemes
  • no funding for the employee health and wellbeing initiatives
  • low awareness levels amongst staff about what health and wellbeing initiatives were available
  • minimal guidance for managers on how to manage staff mental wellbeing.

The trust wanted to put together a new employee health and wellbeing strategy, focusing on improving staff physical and mental wellbeing through a collective effort with other departments including Human Resources (HR), occupational health, nursing directorates, communications and the unions. 

This strategy would inform the health and wellbeing programme, which included a range of accessible and affordable ways for staff to lead a healthier lifestyle but also achieve a better work life balance.

This case study includes the trusts strategy, their communications plan, top tips and a sample health and wellbeing survey.
