Looking after our staff

Our staff is our greatest asset, and we consider wellbeing a priority. We aim to creating a workplace environment that our people love, feel safe, accepted and encouraged. 

We promote organisational culture that fosters individual and team awareness and responsibility for health and wellbeing.

Faith

The EPUT chaplaincy provides non-judgmental, sensitive, and confidential support and aim to provide links with various faith and religious groups as required.

The Chaplaincy Team is made up of chaplains from different Faiths and varying denominations.

LGBTQ+

EPUT are proud of our LGBTQ+ workforce, and they are not defined by their sexuality or gender but by their great contribution to the NHS.

EPUT LGBTQ+ Network meets regularly to discuss how our Trust can provide equal and inclusive treatment to staff members regardless of gender or sexuality. It reports to and has the support of the Equality and Inclusion Committee.

Women's health

SHinE, the women's health group run by Suffolk and North-East Essex (SNEE) ICS are holding another session on Thursday 17 November from 10.30am to 12noon. ​They will be joined by 'Love Your Flow' who aim to reduce period poverty and inform people about the choices they have with regards to period products.

Mindfulness

Every week we offer Virtual Mindfulness Sessions. It is a wonderful technique helping our staff to become more self-aware, feel calmer and less stressed, cope with difficult or unhelpful thoughts and be kinder towards yourself. It has roots in Buddhism and meditation but you don't have to be spiritual or have any particular beliefs to try it.

Wellbeing

Join 'Looking after you, too'​ - a new wellbeing and coaching programme aimed at internationally recruited NHS staff. This service is all about recognising the unique challenges staff from overseas can face, both in their professional and personal lives. It offers free, confidential coaching sessions with an experienced coach. Your coaching sessions will be tailored to meet your individual needs.
