Supporting the mental health of NHS staff as part of post-pandemic recovery
In December 2021, we brought together researchers, NHS staff, professional bodies and policymakers in a Policy Lab to consider the study’s implications. We looked at questions around the current needs of staff, the use and effectiveness of available support, likely future needs, and implications for the effective provision of future support.
Our preliminary data from three London NHS Trusts shows high rates of probable common mental disorders. Groups most at risk of reporting mental health problems include: women, younger staff, and nurses. Our findings suggest a pressing need to identify which support initiatives are the most effective and a requirement for longer-term follow up to monitor changes in wellbeing as the pandemic progresses.
