Danny Mortimer: Employers will welcome the Stevenson-Farmer recommendations

Danny Mortimer

Responding to the Stevenson-Farmer independent review into workplace mental health, Danny Mortimer, Chief Executive of NHS Employers, said: 

“We welcome, on behalf of employers in the NHS, the confirmation through the evidence in the report that addressing mental health issues in the workplace is not only the morally right thing to do, but also enhances the performance of organisations.

“The report rightly highlights the importance of proactive employment practice and of promoting mental health awareness in the workplace.  Employers in the NHS will welcome the clear and evidence-based recommendations and standards, which reinforce the work we have been undertaking as the nation's largest employers, but also challenge us to do much more.

“NHS Employers has developed a series of resources to support organisations and line managers in this area, focusing on prevention and support at an individual, line manager and organisational level."
