Whilst restrictions are being lifted in most public places on 19 July 2021, strict Infection Control needs to be followed in hospitals and healthcare settings, to stop vulnerable people from being placed at additional risk.
Health Passport – At the Trust, we put our people first. The health passport is designed for all colleagues with a disability, long term health condition, mental health issue or learning disability/difficulty, to help support you to flourish at work. The document contains key information about yourself, and any support you may need including reasonable adjustments to help you carry out your role. You can also take it with you as you move between teams or departments throughout your NHS career.
UHP People Plan 2021.2024
At Trust Board in April 2021 our refreshed UHP People Plan 2021.2024 was agreed. The purpose of our People Plan is to set out how we will value, support and develop our staff to create a thriving and sustainable workforce. Whilst it echoes many of the themes in the National People Plan, its emphasis is on the needs of our local context, based on what our people say is important to them. It is one of our enabling strategies to support the delivery of the Trust’s overall strategy.
UHP is proud to be Disability Confident Committed under the UK Government’s Disability Confident Scheme, a national accreditation scheme which complements the work we do to attract, recruit and retain Disabled colleagues, including those with long-term health conditions.
Workplace Wellbeing Charter
Accreditation by the Workplace Wellbeing Charter is awarded to organisations who can demonstrate that they are healthy workplaces. The Charter is endorsed by Public Health England and has become a widely recognised business standard for health, safety and wellbeing across England. The accreditation examines the way an organisation handles the many facets of health and wellbeing:
Health and Safety
Smoking and Tobacco
Alcohol and Substance Misuse
Our recent accreditation acknowledges the best practice that we have put in place which fully supports our commitment to improving the health of our workforce.
