Staff Support and Chaplains
The Staff Support team provides reflective spaces where staff can deal with the emotional impact of their day-to-day work. This assistance was rapidly expanded during the pandemic as the sheer scale of the impact on staff became clear. The Chaplaincy team addresses the pastoral, religious and spiritual needs of patients, carers and staff at the Trust – of all faiths and none.
It was the most trying time but the pandemic really brought out the best in us. I saw so much selflessness. As long as you have the knowledge that you’re cared for and that motivation to support each other, adapting and getting used to new circumstances becomes possible. Helen Winter, Staff Support Lead
