The NHS published the Long-Term Workforce Plan in June 2023 to construct a vision for mitigating the growing workforce issues across the organisation. The plan identified some key challenges currently facing the sector, including worrying trends surrounding staff retention, rising staff mental health problems and a lack of accessible wellbeing systems. However, it also provided an avenue for improvement and solutions that NHS providers can implement moving forward. By setting in force the key principles and strategies behind the workforce plan, NHS professionals will see an upturn in staff wellbeing, creating a healthcare system staff love working for.

  • Only 56.5% of respondents felt their organisation takes positive action on health and wellbeing
  • 69% of respondents said they felt their line manager takes a positive interest in their health and wellbeing
  • 34 per cent of respondents reported feeling burnt out because of their work
  • 3 per cent of staff reported that they were thinking about leaving their organisation
