Keeping Well in South East London is a partnership between the Improving Access to Psychological Therapies Services provided by South London and Maudsley NHS Foundation Trust (SLaM), Oxleas NHS Foundation Trust (Oxleas), Bromley Healthcare and Mind (Bexley).
Keeping Well in SEL support is available to all staff delivering health and care services across SEL. This includes a universal offer through a digital portal which includes access to self-help resources, self-assessment, live chat and a community forum (in development). Prioritisation for access to psychological assessment and treatment through IAPT is available to staff working in organisations that are funded through or partnered with NHS or local authority commissioned services.
The Covid-19 pandemic has brought considerable challenges and stresses to health and care professionals. Working longer hours in hospitals, community and care homes, seeing friends and colleagues become unwell, being redeployed or asked to work in unfamiliar areas may have impacted your stress, anxiety or mood.
You may have worries about your own or your family’s health and safety. You might be exhausted from juggling the pressures of home life and childcare, social isolation and the uncertainty that this period brings to all our lives.
The Keeping Well service is here to provide wellbeing and psychological support to:
- All NHS staff in South East London
- All staff in care/residential homes in South East London
- All voluntary sector staff in South East London, so long as some NHS/social care funding is allocated to your health and care organisation.
