About the event
The NHS People Plan outlines the ambition to enable NHS organisations to create cultures of wellbeing across their organisations, through encouraging wellbeing conversations and the introduction of networks of Health and Wellbeing Champions.
Who can be a Health and Wellbeing Champion?
A Health and Wellbeing Champion role is not intended to be a full time, new or paid role within an organisation. It is intended to be filled by colleagues within an organisation or team, who have a particular interest in health and wellbeing and who are keen to support the wellbeing of their colleagues. This could include colleagues who work in similar roles already, such as occupational health teams, HR, health and wellbeing teams or local staff networks.
We would encourage the Champions are appointed from a range of roles across the organisation, covering a variety of grades, and who have capacity and support from their line manager to be a Champion.
What support is available to me as a Champion?
Alongside any local support your organisation has put in place, NHS England is offering a monthly development programme for Champions, with themed online learning sessions and the opportunity to join a safe space where you can share learning with other Champions.
