GGC Wellbeing Resource Page

Staff Wellbeing Resource page

 The NHS is our place of work. We are rightly proud of it and the care it delivers for others. The NHS staff are its greatest resource. On occasion we need some care. It happens. We have to look after ourselves – or our colleagues - to get the help they might need. It’s hard to perform at your best when you aren’t at your best. 

This document provides an index of all of resources that are available for staff. Please use them or recommend them to those who might benefit. Most of us service our car but don’t pay attention to what is more important – us. 

Don’t suffer in silence as we all need a hand from time to time. Share the care. 


  • Take a moment to think about your day. 
  • Acknowledge one thing that was difficult during your work day – Let it go! 
  • Consider three things that went well. 
  • Check on your colleagues before you leave – are they ok? 
  • Are you ok? We are here to support you. 
  • Now switch your attention to home – Rest and recharge.
