One of our priorities is to be the best place to work.

By attracting, recruiting and keeping health and care colleagues, we will be able to deliver services needed for our population. In being the best place to work, we commit to recruiting colleagues with values congruent to our organisations, offer learning and development opportunities for colleagues to reach their full potential and provide a health and wellbeing support offer that ensures our colleagues have access to resources to maintain a positive wellbeing. 

Here are some of the resources and tools to support colleagues to be well and to care well.

Whether you work in a clinical or non-clinical role within the ICS, the Staff Mental Health and Wellbeing Hub provides access to mental help support tailored to your needs. Qualified mental health professionals offer priority pathways to confidential telephone, video, or face-to-face support tailored to individual needs, provided by local mental health teams and support services close to home.

Your own organisation also offers a fast-track self-referral physiotherapy service, staff counselling services for personal and work-related issues, wellbeing conversation via line managers, flexible working options and access to Occupational Health Services. 

The staff health and wellbeing portal is a one stop shop for staff with links to various resources to support your health and wellbeing. It includes useful information on how to spot and manage depression, stress, low resilience, weight management, muscle soreness/pain, anxiety, burnout, low mood, fear/worry and eye strain, and support available across health and care providers within the Black Country.
