Stress seminars with a proven track record to make welcome return

New dates have been announced for the hugely popular ‘Stress in Healthcare’ seminars.

As part of our commitment to supporting staff affected by stress, the one-day stress seminar with proven results is making a return this November and December.

Open to all staff within NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde, the sessions are run by Martin Davies, a former community psychiatric nurse, who brings a unique style to training, giving advice on self-help in a style that raises a smile without trivialising the seriousness of the topic.

More than 30 of the seminars have already been offered to staff and feedback from previous sessions has been extremely positive.

Kenneth Fleming, head of health and safety, explained: “We carried out follow-up surveys with participants who have attended in the past 12 months. These have shown Martin’s seminars to be really effective at helping staff develop skills and coping strategies to manage stress.

“Staff who have taken part have reported a high level of retention of knowledge even some time after the session, and an ability to alter behaviour and make changes that can affect factors that contribute to stress in the workplace.”

The seminars can take about 45 people each and any level of staff may attend.

Nominations should be made to Jill Dodds, by email, [email protected], and will be accepted on a first-come basis. Please note that a payroll number will be requested for all staff nominated - this is in order to comply with race and equality legislation.
