NHS staff experience, pop up uni, 10am, 3 september 2015

Expo is the most significant annual health and social care event in the calendar, uniting more NHS and care leaders, commissioners, clinicians, voluntary sector partners, innovators and media than any other health and care event.

Expo 15 returned to Manchester and was hosted once again by NHS England. Around 5000 people a day from health and care, the voluntary sector, local government, and industry joined together at Manchester Central Convention Centre for two packed days of speakers, workshops, exhibitions and professional development.

This year, Expo was more relevant and engaging than ever before, happening within the first 100 days of the new Government, and almost 12 months after the publication of the NHS Five Year Forward View. It was also a great opportunity to check on and learn from the progress of Greater Manchester as the area prepares to take over a £6 billion devolved health and social care budget, pledging to integrate hospital, community, primary and social care and vastly improve health and well-being.

  1. 1. Healthy NHS Staff = Healthy NHS Organisations #Expo15NHS @SallyPezaro
  2. 2. Healthy NHS Staff = Healthy NHS Organisations Welcome  • This presentation will initially set the scene in healthcare; • Discover the benefits of having a healthy workforce • Discover the business case • Check out some lived examples • See some results • Link staff health to staff engagement • Offer practicalsolutions going forward
  3. 3. What is your Organisational 'health culture‘? The Challenge Ahead • The workplace is a priority setting for health promotion (DoH, 2009,DoH 2004,WHO,2010) • NHS workers display a relatively low health profile (Blake et al, 2012;Malik et al, 2011) • UK health workers report stress,unhealthy organisational cultures, exhaustion and burnout (Wilkinson, 2015). • Ill health in NHS staff negatively impacts upon the quality & safety of patient care (RCP, 2015;Boorman, 2010) • NHS workplaces should ‘set the example’
  4. 4. The Health of NHS staff • 68% of NHS staff in England report having recently attended work despite not feeling well enough to perform their duties (NHS staff survey, 2013). • Poor mental health = ¼ of staff absences (Boorman, 2009). • Self-reported stress affects nearly 1:4 of NHS employees (England) (Staff survey, 2013). • Death by suicide is highest amongst the caring professions (Roberts et al, 2013) • 300,000 NHS staff are obese, 400,000 are overweight (Van Solk et al, 2009) • NHS staff are all more prone to work-related illness (Hodgeson, 2015) • Stress and mental health issues have overtaken musculo-skeletal disorders as the main reason for sickness absence (NHS Employers, 2014). • ‘Currently the view from the [patient’s] bed is of short-staffed teams working hard to deliver minimum standards of care. Morale is at an all-time low.’ (RCP, 2014).
  5. 5. The benefits of a healthy workforce • Reduced sickness • Fewer accidents/errors • Improved ‘brand’ • Improved retention • Improved resilience • Higher commitment • Higher productivity Source: The Work Foundation
  6. 6. Business Case Study: Royal Mail Royal Mail introduces: • Health screening • Health clinics at 90 sites • Fast access to occupational health services • Access to physiotherapy • Employee assistanceprogramme (EAP) • Incentive scheme • Rehabilitation centres • Phased and partial return to work (RTW) • Case management. Results after 4 years: • Sickness absence levels had fallen to 4 per cent (10 days per employee) • Cost Savings of almost £230m • Up to 3,600 more staff were available to work each day as a result of thesemeasures (Marsden and Moriconi, 2008)
  7. 7. NHS Case Study: Five-year workplace wellness intervention in the NHS (2006 to 2011) – (Blake et al, 2013) • 7,000 -13,000 employees had access to the intervention The Intervention included: • Dedicated website and exercise class timetable • Staff gym • Dedicated well-being rooms,cycle storage/schemes and showers • Dietary interventions (e.g. slimming classes,healthy eating schemes) • Regular health campaigns (Wellbeing Week/Mental Health Week) • Community interventions • Health education • Access to health screening checks • Complementary and relaxation therapies
  8. 8. Results after 5 years… • Sickness absence 4.9% at baseline to 2.6% at follow-up (4.24% less than national figures) • Healthy eating 56.9% at baseline, 61.1% at follow-up • Smoking Behaviour 10.5% of the sample at baseline to 8.6% • Who gets 7 hours of sleep? 59.6% at baseline to 61.7% • Those reporting low mood (8.9%) compared with baseline (12.1%) • Performance at work up from 92.3% to 93.5% (staff perception) • Greater organisational commitment was reported at five years
  9. 9. What do we get when we invest in staff wellbeing…? • An average of 50% cost reduction in relation to workplace accidents has been seen in a variety of settings (PWC, 2008). • Improved alertness, concentration and judgement • Dramatically improve staff retention rates • Increased resilience in staff • Increased productivity • Safer patient care • Improved patient experience • Improved staff experience • Optimal staff engagement (Bevan, 2010)
  10. 10. What is Staff Engagement? “A measure of how people connect in their work and feel committed to their organisation and its goals”. When staff are engaged: • They say “Time passes quickly at work” • They feel excited and enthusiastic about their role • They devote extra time, thinking and effort to their work • They resist distractions • They find it easy to stay focused • Their enthusiasm is contagious (NHS National Workforce Projects 2007)
  11. 11. Guess what? Healthy employees are more engaged and engaged employees are more healthy…. (Van Stolk, 2009; The RCP, 2015)
  12. 12. Linking Staff wellbeing with Staff Engagement Sickness absence is lower when staff: • Are highly motivated • Are engaged • Are well managed • Are working within good quality job • Have a high level of control in their job (Coats and Max, 2005)
  13. 13. The Business Case for investing in staff • Staff retention/absence rates are higher when staff feel cared for, engaged with & supported by their organisation (Reducing the need for temporary staff (estimated cost £1.45 billion per yr)) (Boorman, 2009). • Reduction in recruitment costs (estimated to total £4,500 per vacancy) (CIPD, 2012). • Reduced infection rates (Boorman, 2009) • Improved patient safety/reduction in litigation claims (Prins et al, 2010). • Lower Mortality rates (Keogh, 2013)
  14. 14. How can we make this happen? 1. Demonstrate a commitment to a health and wellness programme that is fully integrated with your organisation’s mission, values and long-term vision (Consider the NICE workplace intervention guidance resources). 2. Galvanize proactive occupational health teams 3. Value staff and their wellbeing in the workplace 4. Enable your staff to innovate and influence within the organisation 5. Source wellbeing champion talent at every level 6. Lead the way in turning these visions into practice
  15. 15. Practical Solutions • Early intervention from line managers from the first day of sickness • Prioritise a plan to support the mental wellbeing of staff and ensure there is provision of psychological therapies • Ensure 24 hour access to affordable healthy food on site • Ensure staff have access to smoking cessation services during working hours. • Ensure that there is equality in support for outsourced staff • Monitor uptake & impact across different groups (age, gender, pay grades, shift patterns) and adapt services accordingly. (Royal College of Psychiatrists, 2015).
