For Mental Health, Physical Health, Healthy Eating and Alcohol and Substance Misuse the trust achieved ‘commitment’ level.

Shajeda Ahmed, associate director of workforce and organisational development, said: “We are absolutely delighted by the re-accreditation of the Workplace Wellbeing Charter which forms part of the trust’s staff engagement approach in support of the health and wellbeing agenda for our services.

“We are also especially pleased with having achieved an excellence rating for our leadership for two successive years which demonstrates our commitment to making the trust a great place for our patients and staff.”

In the run up to the next accreditation in two years time, the trust will be focusing on bringing the other four standards up to an ‘excellent’ level.
