Protecting staff and preventing ill health

B
The NHS cannot deliver care without our staff and this depends on having a healthy and productive workforce. Managers and leaders are key to facilitating open communication with their staff and this can play a huge role in keeping staff well, motivated, feeling valued and empowering employees to perform to their full potential to provide high quality patient care. 

Effective partnership working between human resources, occupational health, health and safety and other services that support staff health is essential. If you don’t know what these services offer and how they can support each other and how will your staff know?
