Without staff that are well and at work the NHS could not deliver quality and effective care to patients. We need to ensure that staff are provided with an environment and opportunities that encourage and enable them to lead healthy lives and make choices that support their wellbeing. It is more important than ever that NHS workplaces become environments that support staff to do this.
The Health and Wellbeing Framework sets out the standards for what NHS organisations need to do to support staff to feel well, healthy and happy at work. It sets out clear actionable steps and provides guidance for organisations to develop and deliver a staff health and wellbeing plan.
Our web pages are structured into sections to support employers through their wellbeing journey and in implementing the framework. There is no quick fix for a successful health and wellbeing programme, it requires engagement, time and commitment.
