Working in the NHS
The staff pledges that are part of the NHS Constitution define what the NHS expects from staff and what staff can expect from NHS employers. One of these pledges is to provide support and opportunities for staff to maintain their health, wellbeing and safety. Further to this, the NHS England Chief Executive announced a major drive to improve the health and wellbeing of health service staff, in a bid to benefit both staff and taxpayers (September 2015).

The data is unweighted. National averages include other organisations outside of the sectors shown in the charts, for example PCTs and CCGs. In 2015 extra categories were created for acute trusts and mental health and learning disabilities trusts that are combined community trusts. Where these trusts were previously coded as either acute trusts or mental health & learning disability trusts the analysis included them in the categories they were previously in.
