NHS England bespoke health and wellbeing support
The pandemic has dramatically changed how we live and work and the NHS has worked relentlessly to adapt so we can care for our patients and communities. So much personal energy and commitment has been given to providing the best care possible.
NHS staff have been grateful to receive overwhelming support from the public since the start of the pandemic last year.
During what is the biggest healthcare crisis in a generation, the delivery of services has required new and different approaches and to maintain care this has been done at speed. Some people’s care and access to treatment has unavoidably been disrupted despite the best efforts of the health service.
Unfortunately, there have been reports that members of staff, including colleagues working in primary care, are being subjected to abuse.
Everyone has the right to be safe at work, and violence and aggression towards NHS staff is totally unacceptable. Anyone with concerns should raise these concerns with their managers or employers. Staff facing abuse will always have support.
The NHS is also working with partner organisations to develop practical support for primary care employers and employees, and staff can also access support and training via the national health and wellbeing support offer.
