SECAmb introduces new Wellbeing Hub

05 January 2018

Wellbging TRiMThe New Year has seen the introduction of a new Wellbeing Hub for all South East Coast Ambulance Service NHS Foundation Trust, (SECAmb), staff and volunteers.

The hub, part of the Trust wellbeing strategy which was launched last year, brings together a range of previously separate services under one umbrella meaning an array of support is available via just one email or phone call.

The strategy is designed to ensure staff and volunteers have the support they need and, in turn, are best placed to meet the needs of the Trust’s patients.

The hub includes access to mental and emotional wellbeing support, physical health including physiotherapy referrals and Trauma Risk Management – a system which provides access to speak and meet with colleagues who have undergone specialist training in the management of people who have experienced traumatic incidents.

The confidential service can also provide access to support for other matters including relationships, finances, drugs and alcohol, sleep, nutrition and fitness and access to the dedicated team of Trust chaplains.

It will also co-ordinate a wide range of workshops, specialist training and events to meet the needs of all its staff and volunteers.

SECAmb Chief Executive Daren Mochrie said: “One of the first things I did when I joined the Trust in April last year was to sign off the Trust’s new wellbeing strategy.

“During the consultation for the strategy, staff explained that they wanted to access all wellbeing services quickly and easily. I’m really proud that we now have our new Wellbeing Hub.

“It provides a single, clear and accessible point for all staff and volunteers to obtain wellbeing advice and support. It brings together a number of areas which, taken together, all impact on the wellbeing of staff but which previously had not always been very accessible, in a single place.

“Staff wellbeing is an integral part of our strategy and I see this launch as a real step forward in demonstrating our commitment to make things better for all staff and volunteers.”
