Wellbeing Works

for the NHS

You work in a demanding and unique culture; find out how we can work with you to help deliver results.


We provide a ‘one stop shop’ to improve workforce wellbeing in the NHS.

We understand the demands and complexities you face and the unique culture that you operate in.

Michael West’s work on staff wellbeing and patient mortality in the acute sector provides the generic evidence for improving staff wellbeing. However, we know from our NHS experience how difficult it is to address the wellbeing agenda especially on an organisation wide basis.

Your focus may well be patient safety, culture change, absence, presenteeism, safe staffing levels, agency costs or staff attraction and retention. Either way we can work with you to help you to deliver results.

What do we do?

Working with a range of commercial companies, we’ve proven we can integrate wellbeing into your HR processes, leading to highly motivated and high performing teams, with low absence and presenteeism rates.

Our team of experts can quickly understand how your organisation works, your priorities and preferences. Our bespoke approach is to find out what matters to you, collect data on those elements that contribute to improving your company, design and, (if needed) help implement solutions that make a difference.

What can we identify?

Examples of what we’ve worked on with companies to date include;

  • identifying who’s at risk of absence, why and at what cost
  • specifying the numbers of staff who will exercise discretionary effort and why
  • demonstrating the true level of presenteeism, its causes, costs and solutions
  • Providing an insight into projected labour turnover; using your company’s unique data to show how many staff are ‘thinking about finding another job,’ which we can correlate with specific causes identified in our wellbeing insight survey.
