#OurNHSPeople wellbeing support launch

Our NHS people are doing extraordinary things in the face of an extraordinary challenge, and so need an extraordinary level of support.

This is why the NHS nationally and locally has developed a range of wellbeing support to care for and protect all of our NHS people, whether at the front line or in supporting services.

So, from today, all our people will have access to a range of support (#OurNHSPeople Wellbeing Support) through one point of contact:

  • A free wellbeing support helpline 0300 131 7000, available from 7.00 am – 11.00 pm seven days a week, providing confidential listening from trained professionals and specialist advice - including coaching, bereavement care, mental health and financial help
  • A 24/7 text alternative to the above helpline - simply text FRONTLINE to 85258
  • Online peer to peer, team and personal resilience support, including through Silver Cloud, and free mindfulness apps including Unmind,  Headspace Sleepio and Daylight
