Support for Staff


Working in health care has never been so challenging. The impact of the Covid 19 global pandemic has seen unprecedented staffing pressures in terms of capacity and has also has a significant impact on staff health and well-being.

Whilst we are working as a system to address the capacity issues which we are all currently facing, to relieve pressure on all our maternity health care professionals and support workers, we also want to make accessing support, advice and other resources as easy as possible.

This area of the resource hub has links to available resources for both staff and students across the system to enable this.
