New catalogue of resources available for maternity staff
A new hub of resources has been developed to support the professional development and wellbeing of maternity staff.
The crucial role maternity teams play in supporting women, birthing people, families, and newborn infants is vital; and improving their wellbeing will ultimately have a positive impact on delivery of care.
This catalogue serves as a one stop shop for maternity staff to access advice and support on a range of topics including:
- Menopause awareness
- Supporting physical and mental wellbeing in the workplace
- Supporting other colleagues
- Equality, diversity and neurodiversity
The programme also includes a host of existing elearning for further professional development, such as Saving Babies Lives, Perinatal Mental Health and Fetal Monitoring.
It has been developed in response to the NHS Long Term Workforce plan which recognises that to retain our workforce, we need to support their health and wellbeing by working with local leaders to ensure integrated occupation health and wellbeing services are in place for staff.
