Westminster Insight’s NHS Employee Wellbeing Digital Conference will address the deep, ongoing, and unprecedented impact of COVID-19 on the mental health of NHS staff. We will focus on the resilience shown by the NHS workforce and explore valuable strategies to support employee wellbeing.

Northumbria Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust, voted the joint top trust to work for in the NHS (NHS Staff Survey - 2020), will share best practices strategies to help you implement a staff wellbeing programme that provides comprehensive support for mental health, physical health and positive lifestyles choices.

You will also have the opportunity to learn from outstanding examples outside the NHS, including Hampshire County Council Constabulary and Fire & Rescue Service. They will examine how to nurture and bolster mental health and wellbeing in high pressured work environments; and how can you increase productivity, destigmatise mental health, and cultivate cultural change.

Understand how to create strong and meaningful relationships between leaders and employees helping to recognise the signs of burnout, better manage wellbeing and create a safe working environment for all NHS staff: how do we recognise the signs of burnout, better manage wellbeing, and create a safe working environment for all NHS staff?
