#LookingAfterYouToo: Coaching support for primary care staff

We recognise that our frontline primary care colleagues involved in the delivery of Primary Care services, both clinical and non-clinical, are facing unprecedented challenges through Covid-19.  We are keen to ensure all staff delivering frontline primary care services feel supported to maintain their psychological wellbeing during this time, enabling them to maintain the delivery of frontline primary care.

Individual coaching support is available with a highly skilled and experienced coach.  This will be a space for you to offload the demands of whatever you are experiencing and be supported in developing practical strategies for dealing with this.  It might be that through a one-off conversation you have all the strategies you need to cope with your situation and stay well.  Or you might find a few sessions helpful.  It is all led by you.

Who is it for? 

All staff working in the delivery of Primary care Services. You will be either employed by the NHS or working with and NHS funded employer delivering an NHS funded Primary Care contract.  

How does it work?

You can register and book a coaching session via the link below.  Sessions are available 07:15 – 22:00 and the first session will last up to 45 minutes.  The sessions will be delivered virtually, preferably via a video platform, but telephone appointments are also available.  Subsequent sessions will be dependent on the conversation between you and your coach.  Your coach might signpost you on to further support if they think this might be helpful.  You may receive follow-up emails to support you in maintaining your wellness once your coaching sessions have finished.
