The winners of the Nursing Times Workforce Awards 2022 were announced on Tuesday 23 November at a ceremony in London bringing together more than 700 professionals from across health and social care.
The winner of the Best Staff Wellbeing Initiative category, which was sponsored by NHS Employers, is the Royal Free NHS Foundation Trust for its Safety Incident Supporting Our Staff (SISOS) initiative
SISOS was initiated five years ago to provide accessible, timely, non-judgmental support for staff psychologically affected by patient safety incidents. Using personal reflection, conversations with colleagues, and pursuing connections with experts nationally and globally resulted in trained peer support and safe spaces. An evolving framework includes a preventative element focusing on just culture, human factors and systems analysis.
Editor of Nursing Times and the host of the awards, Steve Ford said: “I want to congratulate all the winners across our 17 categories at the Nursing Times Workforce Awards 2022, now in their fifth year. Our awards highlight nursing’s workforce achievements and some of the brilliant work being carried out during what continues to be an incredibly difficult period, due to enduring staff shortages, the aftermath of the pandemic and the approach of winter."
