We’ve launched our Mental Health Workforce Plan for Norfolk and Waveney which sets out our vision for Norfolk & Waveney to be the best place to work.
The plan is based on four priorities which will ensure we have happy, healthy staff providing excellent compassionate care.
Priority 1 – Creating new opportunities for our people
We’ll introduce new roles and competency-based career paths. Develop flexible rotational or joint roles working with education partners. And placements in the voluntary sector and opportunities for portfolio careers.
Priority 2 – Promoting good health and wellbeing
We’ll coproduce agreed staffing models to deliver safe, high-quality cost-effective care and take action to address racism and microaggressions from patients/carers.
Priority 3 – Creating a positive and inclusive culture
We’ll take action to improve equality, diversity & inclusion and promote the anti-racism strategy. Create leadership development programmes and provide access to team and individual coaching.
Priority 4 – Maximising the skills of our people
We’ll develop a collaborative training offer for communities, patients/carers, people working in mental health and volunteers, and we’ll create a Children and Young People mental health academy.
As a health and care system, we will all work together to make Norfolk and Waveney the best place to work and ensure people can live as healthy a life as possible.
