NHS Employers showcased the work of 11 NHS trusts who are driving positive impacts on staff, patient and public health via exemplar practice in staff health and wellbeing and engagement.

Employees from the 11 exemplar trusts were joined by Dame Carol Black, Expert Adviser on Work and Health, and senior representatives from the Department of Health, NHS England and Public Health England as well as the CIPD and Faculty of Occupational Medicine, at the Healthy Workplaces NHS Exemplar meeting in June. 

The meeting enabled the 11 trusts to share the progress being made in their own organisations, highlighting what has worked well for them and exploring the scalability and potential for shaping future national plans to improve staff experience, staff engagement and wellbeing, in support of the NHS Five Year Forward View.

NHS Employers Chief Executive Daniel Mortimer said “The NHS has many fantastic examples of where work in this area is already happening and having really positive results and measurable impacts. The meeting was informative, and future focused with in depth discussions around shared successes - and set backs - the lessons of which which could move this key agenda forward across the NHS.”

A summary of the work carried out by each of the 11 trusts is available to download, or you can read more about what each organisation is doing from the links below:

The health and wellbeing of staff and staff engagement were both addressed in NHS Englands Five Year Forward View. The five year forward view identified the role that the NHS must place in improving the health of its workforce, and acting as an example to other employers as part of a wider improvement in the health of the population.
