A Trust campaign which encourages caring NHS staff to think about their own health and wellbeing has won a national HSJ Value Award.
The #allofus wellbeing campaign was designed to raise awareness of the range of health and wellbeing services available for staff, including counselling, physiotherapy and physical health checks.
The campaign also served to remind staff that wellbeing is about ‘all of us’ – research shows that staff who care for themselves are better equipped to care for others.
The Trust was announced as the winner in the ‘Communications initiative’ category at the awards ceremony held at Manchester Central on 23 May.
The HSJ Value Awards recognise excellent use of resources, and also seek out examples of demonstrable improvement in outcomes, both within back office functions and clinical initiatives.
Following the campaign, 91% of staff said it made them think about their own wellbeing, and 77% said it made them aware of advice or support they didn’t know about.
Director of HR, OD and estates Alan Davis said: “The wellbeing of our staff is a huge priority for our Trust as we know that improving our health improves care outcomes. Winning this award is great recognition of the commitment we’ve made to making sure that our staff are healthy and happy at work.”
