This guidance helps healthcare organisations to introduce the wellbeing guardian function. This function supports the development of a compassionate and inclusive wellbeing culture by independently challenging senior leaders, seeking assurance and recommending models, methods, and resources to support employee wellbeing.

It also describes how wellbeing guardians should ideally work with existing roles such as health and wellbeing leads, occupational health, human resources and organisational development teams, and wider stakeholders who support the wellbeing of our NHS people.
