Supporting King's staff

King's staff work tirelessly and around the clock to provide the best care possible for their parents. We invest in projects that support King's staff, to improve their working environment and help them cope with the day-to-day demands of the job.
The brand-new Wellbeing Hub. The walls are a calming sage green and the carpet is a calming grey. There are twin chairs in a rich purple in the far left hand corner. In the near left corner there is a round, white table with three sage green soft chairs. There are two lava lamps in the back, as well as some more purple chairs to the right. There are calming pictures framed on the wall.

Psychological support for staff

NHS staff can struggle with a heavy burden – long and inflexible working hours, a highly stressful work environment and the emotional toll of working with very sick patients can contribute to burnout, loneliness and poor mental health.

Making life more manageable for NHS staff

Although we’re unable to transform the challenges facing the national NHS workforce, we have continued to focus on areas where we can make a significant impact on staff wellbeing.
