This session will focus on key challenges in health and wellbeing post-COVID-19. It will share reflections on the system-wide approach to staff support, new area-based approaches to workforce wellbeing and how organisations are supporting staff mental health.

The session will look at how organisations can build on the focus on health and wellbeing to bring about a lasting culture change in line with the NHS People Plan People Promise. In addition, there will be opportunity for participants to share local experience and identify key issues.
