NHS staff urged to get flu vaccinations

The NHS has joined forces with the government and trade unions to launch the first national flu-vaccination campaign for NHS staff.

The National NHS Staff Seasonal Flue Vaccination campaign aims to raise awareness among NHS workers about the importance of receiving the jab and the potential for them to transmit germs to vulnerable patients if they are not inoculated.

New figures released by the Department of Health revealed that only a third of front-line NHS staff had season flu vaccinations last year. In addition, figures published in May by the Health Protection Agency showed that, during the last flu season, more than 600 deaths in the UK were directly related to the virus.

In this episode  of the Safety & Health Podcast, ‘Burnout, stress and being human’, Heather Beach is joined by Stacy Thomson to discuss burnout, perfectionism and how to deal with burnout as an individual, as management and as an organisation.

We provide an insight on how to tackle burnout and why mental health is such a taboo subject, particularly in the workplace.
