To deliver high quality patient care, the NHS needs a workforce that is healthy, well and at work. Research has shown that looking after the health and wellbeing of staff directly contributes to the delivery of quality patient care. Without staff that are well and at work the NHS could not deliver quality and effective care to patients.

The trust recognises that 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, because poor workforce health has high and far reaching costs to the organisation and ultimately its service users.

The Trust's health and wellbeing offer is substantial and is led by our Occupational health and wellbeing department
