Your Wellbeing


Firstly, NHS Professionals would like to thank you for your unwavering support and commitment to the fight against COVID-19. Whether you’re on the front line directly caring for patients or in one of the thousands of essential roles our NHS Trusts rely on each and every day, this is a challenging time for us all. We are all working very differently and combined with the additional pressures of looking after loved ones and anxiety about the future, this can be very tough.

With all this in mind, we need to take steps to maintain our physical and mental health and overall wellbeing.

We’re pleased to share a range of wellbeing tips, designed to help you take the steps you need to support you

This includes a free wellbeing support helpline, useful guides and peer to peer, team and personal resilience support and much more.
