Keynote: Wellbeing at Work (optional)

In response to the rising prevalence of stress and burnout among health professionals, The BMJ is running a campaign for doctors’ wellbeing. It calls for doctors to be able to take breaks and to have places where they can rest and recuperate, for their own and their patients’ safety. Working together with the BMA, the Royal colleges, employers and patient groups, this is a united effort to change systems, working practices, and culture to ensure that doctors get the breaks they need.

In June 2019 the interim NHS England People Plan was announced. The Plan sets out a vision for a new way of working that will deliver more joined up, patient centered care while at the same time improving work-life balance and flexibility for staff across the organisation. 

It’s an ambitious project with far reaching objectives, from improving leadership culture, to tackling workforce shortages and introducing new operating models.
