    At a time when the NHS is undergoing vast change, we need to ensure that our people are well, engaged and motivated in order to deliver high quality work which ultimately impacts on patient services.  We have done this in two ways; by implementing a strong wellbeing offer which is data driven and links to our organisation’s strategic goals, and by developing and embedding a new agile culture across the organisation which focuses on work being an activity we do rather than a place we go.  Both focusses not only link to our strategic direction as an organisation, but have involved engagement with all of our people, shaping our offers and ensuring that what we are providing is what our people want and need whilst empowering them to have autonomy over their health and wellbeing. Ultimately, our aim is for wellbeing to be a golden thread that runs through everything we do and not a one-off activity.
