Why staff wellbeing is important

This is a very anxious time for staff with many conflicting emotions surfacing; those of fear, worry, sadness; loyalty to loved ones at home and loyalty to team members.

That’s why supporting the wellbeing of our staff is more important than ever, as we respond to the unprecedented challenge of COVID-19. If we do not care for the emotional wellbeing of our staff, we cannot provide good quality care for our patients.

Ensuring the psychological, emotional and physical wellbeing of all our staff and managers means caring for our staff, and providing them with access to the best wellbeing support possible. This is to both prepare staff for the COVID-19 challenge, and to support them through it.

The National Centre for Mental Health, in partnership with Health & Care Research Wales and the Welsh Government, has published a support guide for people and managers who are supporting others following the experience of trauma. However, we’re not just here to support our staff during the pandemic. We’ll be here for them afterwards, too.

 

Our CTM commitment to staff wellbeing

Looking after you is our key focus. Through our wellbeing support, we hope everyone will feel better equipped to look after themselves (and each other) during these extremely challenging times.

The advice and support being made available will help staff to look after themselves, as well as help managers to look after their teams.

Our Wellbeing Team

We have a small but dedicated team providing wellbeing support to all our staff across our three main hospital sites and also our community hospitals. This is being overseen by Dr Clare Wright, our health board Wellbeing Lead, along with our Clinical Psychologists and trained professionals.

At Our Best

On 15 October 2020, Cwm Taf Morgannwg University Health Board launched “At Our Best,” our new organisational values and behaviours. These are based upon more than 6,500 pieces of feedback collected from colleagues, patients and service users in order to find out what’s important to us all.

Due to the pandemic, this has been particularly challenging time for our organisation. Our values are not intended to provide all the solutions, however, they can help us focus on how we can be “at our best” by working together, as one team. Members of staff can read all about our new organisational values and behaviours via our dedicated SharePoint page (Search “At Our Best”).
