Health and Wellbeing Champions

The NHS People Plan sets out an ambition to enable NHS organisations to create cultures of wellbeing across their organisation. This includes inviting NHS organisations to implement a network of Health and Wellbeing Champions.

What are Health and Wellbeing Champions?

Health and Wellbeing Champions are individuals who work at all levels of the NHS, from all demographics and roles, who will promote, identify and signpost their colleagues to local and national health and wellbeing support offers.  This is intended to be taken on as a responsibility in addition to their day to day role.

Understanding your role – an e-learning module

NHS England and NHS Improvement have worked with a number of NHS colleagues to develop an optional e-learning module for Health and Wellbeing Champions to complete, to support them in understanding the remit of their role.  This training can be access on the Health Education England e-Learning for Healthcare website. Champions can also access ongoing support through our dedicated space the NHS Futures site.
