The NHS People Plan will develop a new offer for our people through which they will have voice and support including a focus on improved mental health.

This will build on progress implementing mental health standards in ‘Thriving at Work – a review of mental health and employers’, which have been included in NHS Standard Contracts and embedded in the National Health Service staff health and wellbeing framework.
