Google+ Hangout with Professor Derek Mowbray discussing stress in the NHS

I recently recorded this Google+ Hangout with Professor Derek Mowbray. We were discussing stress in the NHS, a topic we both have a strong professional interest in.

Last week, I set up a project last week called Tackling Stress in the NHS where you can get get involved if you're interested in this issue. Stress is a big and complex problem for the NHS with many causes and a number of solutions with potential to make a real difference.

Derek was heavily involved in developing the NHS Manager's Code of Conduct, which was launched in 2012 in association with the Institute for Healthcare Management. The aim of the Code is to facilitate Positive Work Cultures in NHS organizations, preventing work-related stress and promoting wellbeing and performance.

The video is quite long, about 25 minutes, but well worth watching if you're at all interested in issues around stress in the NHS. (You can three shorter videos specifically about the NHS Managers Code on this page.)
