HEE report highlights ‘challenging environment’ for NHS staff, says NHS Employers

Sue Covill

In response to the HEE NHS Staff and Learners' Mental Wellbeing Commission report, Sue Covill, Director of Development and Employment at NHS Employers, said:

“The NHS could not deliver quality care to patients without its staff. It is critical that we understand the needs of staff and learners and the NHS does all it can to support the wellbeing of its workforce. 

“The findings and recommendations of the report continue to highlight the challenging environment in which our staff and learners work, but also the dedication and commitment of our staff to continue to deliver the best care they can to patients. 

“We welcome the recommendations and the continued focus on key steps employers and staff can take to support and promote wellbeing.  

“NHS trusts are working extremely hard to improve and support the wellbeing of their staff. Where this works well, organisations have strong leadership from their board to drive improvements, influence the culture of the organisation and engage with staff to provide the prevention, support and interventions needed.”
