An online campaign to help NHS colleagues in Hampshire and Isle of Wight (HIOW) stay well this winter has been launched by the area’s enhanced health and wellbeing team.
With autumn well and truly here and winter rolling in, the HIOW Health & Wellbeing programme team has created a Winter Wellness toolkit – packed full of advice and tips on workplace wellbeing, nutrition, light therapy and mindfulness.
Aimed at the county’s NHS colleagues working in all six trusts, as well as those working in Primary Care, the campaign also includes short videos from local wellbeing experts and a live winter wellness yoga session.
The campaign material will be released through each trust during the week-long campaign, (29 October – 5 November) and will also be available on the People Portal, a new online health and wellbeing resource for all those working in the NHS in Hampshire and Isle of Wight.
Hilary Todd, HIOW Health & Wellbeing Programme Director, said: “We know the last 18 months has been tough for everyone, especially for all those working in healthcare. Our enhanced staff wellbeing service aims to provide additional support to complement what’s already on offer from each trust or place of work.
“Winter can be a tough time for those working in healthcare and keeping well during this pandemic is challenging for us all, regardless of our job role or where we work. We recognise our NHS colleagues are doing an amazing job supporting people during this time and in turn, we want to make sure we do everything possible to support them to keep healthy and well this season, to ensure they can keep on helping others.”
