The Staff Wellbeing Service provides all LPFT staff with the opportunity to have access to individual psychological therapy for anxiety, depression, stress-related and physical health difficulties.

Your difficulties do not need to be work-related in order to be seen within the service.

You can also contact the Staff Wellbeing Service if you have identified domestic abuse and would like some support.

For support, please contact via the Staff Wellbeing Hub, by telephone on 01522 518609 or email at lpft.staffwell-being@nhs.net (Mon-Fri, 9am-5pm)

For alternative domestic abuse support, you can contact the Safeguarding Lead directly on 01522 421548 or lpft.safeguardingadvice@nhs.net

    are currently impacting on your wellbeing.
  • Boost your confidence and self-esteem - gain confidence and improve your self esteem by developing your skills in assertiveness.
  • Sleep - during a 4-week course or half day workshop, we explore different areas of
    sleep, how they may impact on our lives and what we may be able to do to
    help ourselves to sleep better.

The COVID-19 pandemic has affected a huge number of people across all teams in different ways.

The Team Time initiative has been launched to provide a safe, facilitated forum to help staff connect with each other and feel supported, in order to feel better equipped to cope with the impact of the pandemic.

This initiative has been developed to focus on the emotional impact of the pandemic and uses the principles of Schwarz Rounds in terms of structure.
