Wellbeing Podcasts & Blogs

The impact of Covid-19 and winter pressures continue to disrupt and interrupt our everyday lives in many ways, and we are all experiencing a level of change that is both unprecedented in speed . The impact of this has been felt more acutely and keenly by those working for at the front-line of patient care or working hard to maintain a service in extremely challenging circumstances.

Through a series of three podcasts, we aim to provide some thoughts, ideas and strategies to help you make sense of your experience over recent months and move through the next phase of response.

In addition to, or in place of the podcasts you may find it helpful to have the opportunity to take 10-15 minutes time to read and reflect. We have a series of blogs, around a range of topics or with the aim of supporting you during these particularly difficult months. There are a variety of titles around mindfulness, compassion, adapting to uncertainty and taking time to pause.

We hope you find these useful during this time.
