Guide to health and wellbeing

We know that the nature of the work we do in the caring profession can be challenging to our wellbeing.

To effectively care for others, we must first be able to care for ourselves; and this has become ever more important since COVID-19.

We have listened to your feedback and further developed our OUH health and wellbeing offer to support you, your team and your family during this challenging time.

In this guide you will find information and support for six elements of wellbeing. For information on the Centre for Occupational Health and Wellbeing, please visit:
