Support for leaders

Looking after your team 

Looking After Your Team

Our new #LookingAfterYourTeam service will create an opportunity for individuals who lead, manage or organize teams, groups, services or networks, to access coaching about their team. Coaching support is available with a highly skilled and experienced coach and is centred around compassionate and collaborative team leadership. The aim is to encourage psychological wellbeing and resilience in teams while supporting them to continue to deliver projects, services and high-quality care to patients.

Executive Suite

Our NHS executive and senior leaders are role models in enabling the wellbeing and resilience of our workforce. Being seen as a resilient leader inspires others to keep going. However, it is often forgotten that our most senior leaders are still human beings and need support themselves. It is vital that our most senior leaders remain well and resilient, so that they can pass this resilience and wellbeing on to others.

This is why we have created this suite of supportive offers and resources. They are designed to support you to remain a resilient leader, continue to thrive in your role, and set cultures that value the importance of health and wellbeing.

'In recent times, I have utilised admissions to Richardson for respite direct from my fracture clinic, even at weekends. I have never worked anywhere with this efficiency before - it is reassuring and invaluable for the patient.'
