Abstract

Health and Wellbeing within the NHS has been identified as an important factor in
improving patient satisfaction, improving high quality care standards, driving down
costs and improving employee engagement. The aim of this study was to investigate
how the current Health and Wellbeing strategy at Western Sussex Hospitals NHS
Trust against the latest organisational and Government research and make
recommendations to enhance employee Health and Wellbeing and Engagement. The
research found Health and Wellbeing interventions have to be holistic and multi
dimensional to get maximum benefit. Furthermore, communication and delivery
methods were found to be very important to ensure staff engaged fully with the
interventions.
A survey and semi-structured interviews were used to ascertain the current Health
and Wellbeing strategy has had some considerable success in increasing employee
engagement. Results also showed employees would like more permanent fitness
interventions and incorporating emotional resilience training for supervisors and line
managers.
Recommendations to the Trust included establishing a permanent budget and
department for Health and Wellbeing and aligning it with current Trust initiatives;
Patient first and we care. Finally, an agile delivery method was recommended to
enable the new department to identify the needs of teams or departments and
measure the success of the interventions put into place.
