Retaining and supporting our NHS people is a key priority across the NHS. Leaders play a crucial role in supporting colleagues to not only stay, but stay well.

It is crucial to ensure that our NHS people feel valued and can develop in their career, regardless of role or band, and have access to health and wellbeing support, development and opportunities to help achieve their individual ambitions in the workplace.

This session will share some of the ways in which our NHS people are being supported at each stage of their career, and how this is impacting on retention and health and wellbeing of colleagues.

It will aim to provide colleagues with takeaways on how they might implement aspects in their own organisation.

This session is part of the Sustainable Healthcare Zone, which is sponsored by Boehringer Ingelheim.
