The charity Mind describes resilience as follows:

There may be times or situations in our lives that are more difficult than others. The capacity to stay mentally well during those times is what we call ‘resilience’.

Resilience is not simply a person’s ability to ‘bounce back’, but their capacity to adapt in the face of challenging circumstances, whilst maintaining a stable mental wellbeing.

While everyone is struggling with the uncertainty caused by Covid-19, the pressure currently on the NHS includes the NHS finance community. Staff are having to navigate uncharted territory including working from home; being isolated from teams; procuring the equipment for frontline staff as well as keeping track of the cost of this crisis. And this is on top of the ‘business as usual’ demands to keep the organisation running and deliver annual accounts.

Many staff will also be facing personal pressures such as home schooling, caring for relatives and their own health concerns. Maintaining resilience in the face of all these challenges can be difficult.

This webinar will support the NHS finance community’s resilience with some practical tips/ coping strategies, with the focus on looking after their mental health.

Faye will provide guidance and refer to some of the materials that MIND have produced in responses to the Covid-19 crisis. Including the MIND wellbeing toolkit and the Covid-19 care card.

The webinar will be chaired by Sarah Day, Policy & Research Manager at HFMA, who will be able to further delve in some of the specific pressures on NHS finance staff and discuss what the HFMA are offering in terms of support at this unprecedented time.
