Health safety and wellbeing partnership group


The NHS Staff Council’s Health, Safety and Wellbeing Partnership Group (HSWPG) was established to:

  • raise standards of workplace health, safety and wellbeing in healthcare organisations
  • promote a safer working environment for all healthcare staff
  • promote best practice across the NHS and independent sector.

Membership of the partnership group is made up of NHS Employers representatives, nominated representatives from within the NHS and trade union representatives. 

The group has produced a range of useful guidance and information which can be found in their resources section below.
