Wellbeing Support for Primary Care
There are many sources of health and wellbeing support which all staff can access during this time. We recognise how important this is as we are all working together to support patients and our own friends and family and need to ensure we are also looking after ourselves.
NHS England and NHS Improvement have announced the first in a series of psychological support for all NHS staff during the COVID19 outbreak. As such, we are pleased to offer these wellbeing apps to all NHS staff for free.
