Kent and Medway are delighted to tell you that they are launching today a new health and wellbeing resource for colleagues working in health and care across Kent and Medway, providing a wealth of advice and support in one place.
Kent and Medway Wellbeing Hub, which can be accessed via www.kmstaffwellbeinghub.uk, provides a wealth of advice and services for when you need a little extra support, as well as lots of tips and resources for being proactive, helping you to stay happy and healthy.
For the first time, Kent and Medway Wellbeing Hub brings together access to resources for staff working in different sectors. Created collaboratively with health and care colleagues across Kent and Medway, the hub focuses on proactive wellness, while making sure our people have access to support when they need it.
Designed to complement existing intranets and the Talking Wellness mental health hub, the new hub is broken down into sections, making it easy to navigate. Topics covered include financial wellbeing, work/life balance, mental health, staying physically well and how colleagues can support each other.
Feedback during user testing was extremely positive, with colleagues saying the hub was ‘very useful and relevant’, ‘well categorised and clear’, and it was ‘nice to have all the information in one place’ with ‘short friendly messaging’.
More content will be added over time, including relevant training and events, as well as resources for different long-term conditions.
Kent and Medway are keen to receive feedback so future development of the hub is in line with what colleagues need. Please email comments to firstname.lastname@example.org.
