    Many people roll their eyes at me when I start talking about 'Joy in Work'. Yes, I get it, how can you have joy in work when it’s sometimes hard to even get through a shift without your stress levels going through the roof? The term Joy in Work has gained traction over recent years, However, if you don’t like the term (which many people in the UK don’t), think instead about it as a way of improving patient care and reducing the stress and frustrations which you and other members of your team encounter at work on a daily basis. Why is Joy in Work important? Research tells us

    The U.S. is facing high levels of burnout among health care workers, which could lead to serious shortcomings in patient care, a new report from the U.S. Surgeon General has found. Burnout among health care workers was a serious problem even before the COVID-19 pandemic, but the stress caused by the ongoing pandemic has made things much worse, said Surgeon General Dr. Vivek Murthy. “The pandemic has accelerated the mental health and burnout crisis that is now affecting not only health workers, but the communities they serve,” Murthy said. “Already, Americans are feeling the impa

    Key takeaways from the Surgeon General’s Advisory Causes of burnout Workplace systems cause burnout among health workers, not individuals. There are a range of societal, cultural, structural, and organizational factors that contribute to burnout among health workers. Some examples include: excessive workloads, administrative burdens, limited say in scheduling, and lack of organizational support.

    Regulators have raised serious concerns over trainee doctors within the maternity department at one of the largest trusts in the country. The NHS’ training regulator said it had concerns over the treatment of trainee doctors within the obstetric and gynaecology department at University Hospitals Birmingham Foundation Trust, while some medics report being in ‘meltdown’. Reviewers raised an incident where a consultant had refused to respond to an obstetric emergency in A&E which had been requested by a junior doctor. “The panel unanimously agreed that Consultant presence was r

    Nurses have spoken of the shocking abuse they face from patients as the NHS struggles to cope with a rise in demand for care. Both patients and staff are becoming increasingly frustrated with the situation the NHS is in, with staff shortages and a patient backlog of six million people causing already stretched services extra strain. "As we are the faces that the public see we do get the brunt of a lot of their anger as they are becoming increasingly frustrated with the situation that the NHS is in," one nurse wrote on Nursing Standard’s Facebook page. "Staff are equally frustrated wi

    Burnout is not a strong enough term to describe the severe mental distress nurses and other NHS staff are experiencing, says a doctor who has led efforts to improve care for health professionals. Medical director of the NHS Practitioner Health service Dame Clare Gerada told MPs radical action was needed to improve the mental well-being of NHS staff. She said nurses and other healthcare staff should be entitled to one hour of paid reflective time per month to be written into NHS employees’ contracts, alongside mentoring, careers advice and leadership training built in throughout peopl

    As I write this, I am one of the lucky people who can stay at home today, coach NHS colleagues, notice a storm raging and write this blog. Yes, it’s 18 February 2022, the day when many records of wind speed are being broken and our services stand tall against the odds (again). So how are you as we continue our march into March? We have an overwhelming demand for services, but you are still the brilliant you. Here’s four things that may help you continue to stand tall: 1.
