STAFF – health and wellbeing support

Thinking about how to keep your health and wellbeing a top priority? Well we have a wide range of support available to you here on our health and wellbeing pages!  We’ve put them on our public website so you can easily access them from either work or home.

You are our priority – and we want to help to support you and keep you well.

We’re working in partnership with NHS England and Improvement to provide the support – which is a package of measures, provided both locally and nationally, to support you as you help people deal with the coronavirus and deal with it yourself.

We have dedicated pages covering the four stages of help available. These are:

  • Helping to prevent you from being ill.
  • The self help and peer support on offer.
  • The targetted support available to you.
  • Individual support/intervention you can access.

Access to them all is here. Simply click on the images below.

Are you struggling with the impact of COVID-19? Don’t struggle on alone – We are here to help you

The past year has been challenging, especially for health, care and emergency services workers.

The impact of COVID-19, global and personal uncertainty, changes to routine and environment and prolonged periods of stress is putting extraordinary strain on our personal resilience.

We know it’s not always easy to seek support but at this time it’s more important than ever for you to look after your wellbeing.

In recognition of this Humber, Coast and Vale Health and Care Partnership have launched a new Resilience Hub that’s open to all health, care and emergency services staff across the region.

The Resilience Hub is a confidential service that builds on existing wellbeing support offers that are available and can provide you and your family advice and support that can help with a range of issues from emotional wellbeing to bereavement, burnout and stress, to debt or relationship issues.

The Hub is independent of existing organisational health and wellbeing services and its dedicated team can help you to quickly access the best advice and treatment when you need it.

Visit Humber, Coast and Vale Staff Resilience Hub for more information.

The virtual Pandemic Psychological Support Hubs are in place and available to provide support to our staff – staff receive support by emailing the ‘hub’ on the email addresses below.
