Battling Burnout and Tackling Stress: Improving the Health & Wellbeing of NHS Staff


NHS staff have some of the most critical yet testing jobs in the country, yet they are faced with growing demand and increasingly complex workloads. As a result, one in four NHS staff feel under “excessive pressure every day,” while over a quarter of NHS staff don’t take a single break during their work day. Stress-related sickness absence alone costs the NHS up to £400m a year.

Attend this Westminster Briefing to learn how to improve the health & wellbeing of your workforce and reduce burnout and stress levels amongst your frontline staff. Engage with our expert panel and your peers to discover ways to improve the working conditions of your colleagues to ensure that they are fully able to provide consistently excellent care.

Key Issues to Be Addressed:

  • Improving staff wellbeing in the face of budget deficits, increased demand and more complex workloads
  • Reducing temporary staffing spending while maintaining a quality service
  • Battling burnout and tackling stress: practical measures that can be taken
  • Meeting the NICE quality standard: improving employee mental & physical health
  • Tackling the causes of sickness absence
  • National good practice in supporting the health and wellbeing of NHS staff
  • Changing workplace cultures to help staff deal with heavy workloads
  • Improving conditions to increase the retention of frontline staff
