‘You’re here for us. We’re here for you’ – that’s the reminder from Lancashire and South Cumbria’s Resilience Hub to health and social care workers, including those that work in care homes, emergency services and local authorities across the patch.
The hub, hosted by Lancashire and South Cumbria NHS Foundation Trust, launched in December 2020 in response to the Covid-19, to support public sector workers and their immediate families with the psychological impact of the pandemic.
Having already helped in excess of 1100 individuals and numerous teams and services, as well as currently working directly with staff at over 80 care homes across the locality, the Resilience Hub is now extending its offer to those individuals also suffering from non-Covid related wellbeing issues for example work-related stress, burnout, loss and bereavement, anxiety and low mood.
Director of Lancashire and South Cumbria’s Resilience Hub, Dr Guta Bhutani, said: “We are still here for those who need help, whether you are in the NHS or wider healthcare family, the emergency services or social care, including care home and councils”.
“It is quick and easy to access help through the Resilience Hub and support will be tailored to what best suits you and your needs. “Start the conversation and if we are not the right support service for you, we can point you in the right direction of who can help”.
Dr Bhutani continued: “Tell your colleagues about us so they know how to get help if they need it”.
An self-assessment tool available at www.lscresiliencehub.nhs.uk provides an opportunity for you to assess how you are managing at present. It only takes 15 minutes to complete and this can be followed-up with a confidential self-referral to the Resilience Hub team if you think extra support will be helpful.
You can also contact the Resilience Hub by calling 01772 520228 or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org for help and advice.
