Launch of Stress Awareness Week


Week commencing the 12th August 2013, the GMB union will be launching a week of stress awareness, relaxation techniques and incident reporting.  Following the 2012 NHS National Staff Survey, we have conducted a survey of our own in the Leeds Trust Hospitals which seemed to indicate that the situation is getting worse rather than better. 

The GMB relaxation road-show will be easily identifiable by the deck chair, palm tree and free massages, plus sign posting to the various courses which are designed to help workers under stress.

If you visit the road-show you will be entered into a free prize draw for GMB members with the chance to win a digital camera.

We will be at the following sites:

• St James (Gledhow Wing) 12th & 13th August from 10am to 4pm
• Chapel Allerton (staff coffee lounge, floor 2) 14th August from 10am to 4pm
• Seacroft (opposite WRVS café) 15th August from 10am to 4pm
• Wharfedale Outpatients 16th August from 10am to 4pm

We also wish to launch a campaign with the broader aim of pushing the Trust to deal with the shockingly high levels of stress reported in the 2012 NHS National Staff Survey.
