The health and wellbeing of our staff is extremely important to us. We need to look after you, so you can look after our patients.

We have a range of support services available to all our staff, and a dedicated Wellbeing team on hand to help you access the support that you need.

They offer immediate emotional wellbeing support, trauma support, signposting and self-care resources. The Here for You team also visit all of our sites in person every month to provide individual and team support sessions.
