Wellbeing in the workplace for primary care

27 May 2021 @ 9:00 am - 1:00 pm

About the course

This session is for GP’s Practice Leads and Practice Managers. Workplace wellbeing is multifaceted, and organisations

are increasingly seen as responsible for promoting positive physical and mental wellbeing for their employees.

Promoting wellbeing in the workplace has significant benefits from an individual, team, and organisational perspective;

some examples include reduced sickness absence, better work- life balance, better employee morale and engagement,

reduced work-related stress, better staff retention, and increased productivity (CIPD, 2020).

The COVID-19 pandemic has taken its toll on the NHS and its staff, with particular challenges for those working in

primary care. Many NHS staff are struggling with burnout and have poor mental wellbeing as a result of the constant

demands and pressure over the last 12 months.

This course will explore the perspectives of individual, team, and organisational wellbeing through the lens of

organisational and occupational psychology. This interactive workshop will explore the following concepts:
