Take a targeted approach
Use organisational data available to identify ‘hot spot’ areas and target interventions to have maximum impact on improving staff wellbeing.
If organisational intervention is required, look at national campaigns and use these to launch local interventions, using their materials and resources for wider impact.
It is crucial to ensure you have identified how you will evaluate the impact of an intervention to avoid multiple interventions that do not have the desired impact. This can quickly use resources and reduce engagement.
Use resources and support services available
Link in with your local public health teams and providers, such as leisure centres, to see what is available to support staff wellbeing and recovery.
Make the most of the expertise in your organisation, such as physiotherapist services or mental health support. It might be worth linking in with other local NHS trusts and the STP footprint in your area to share resources and good practice.
Ensure interventions are accessible for staff
It's really important that staff can access interventions. Think about timing, is it best to schedule activities at lunchtime or would the start or end of shifts be better? Make sure that your night shift staff are able to access the same things as others.
