Thrive at Work

We care about your experience of your everyday working life in critical care.

We know that sustaining the wellbeing of our staff means that we can provide a better service for our patients, and we make safer decisions and fewer mistakes. We know that this is not just about how you as an individual manage the stress of your job; it is about how your job is designed (including how valued you feel at work, your autonomy and sense of control), the way your unit is managed and your team is led, and the support from your peers. 

This wellbeing hub therefore examines wellbeing from all angles - individual, team, and system, and from three stages of response: primary prevention, secondary intervention, and tertiary intervention.
