The enhanced support package consists of three key elements:
- #WeCareTogether website: a “one-stop shop” with the best national health and wellbeing resources available free to all primary care staff. It includes everything available on the websites of each of the individual professions. It will save you time in identifying and accessing the help you need.
- The Shapes Programme: Developed by a GP, Dr Rachel Morris, a major strength of the Shapes Programme is it’s directly applicable to daily practice in primary care. The programme includes the Shapes Toolkit of seven different key productivity, resilience, and coaching tools to help build happier, healthier, and more productive teams. Training is free for everyone in primary care and delivered through workshops, webinars, bite-sized videos, and other downloadable resources
- Resilient Team Academy (RTA): The RTA is a key element of the Shapes Programme and access is free for all leaders/managers in primary care. The RTA will help you retain staff by building a successful team that is in control of its workload. You will be able to download the Shapes Toolkit and use it with your team. The RTA is an established community of Health & Social Care leaders across England sharing learnings and best practice across sectors. Its key benefit will be developing a primary care leadership community across Norfolk & Waveney.
