The project uses a mixed-methods approach with some data collection taking place online or face-to-face if preferred. We would like to invite you to consider taking part in the project. Below are a few different stages that you may be able to participate in:

About the project

Maudsley Learning are working closely with our Healthier Southeast London (SEL) Integrated Care System (ICS) to understand the impact health and wellbeing platforms and Employee Assistance Programmes (EAP’s) have had on health and care staff within the region.

Our approach to this project aims to document the innovative work of the Keeping Well Southeast London (KWSEL) portal and EAP’s, and to understand how well the portal addresses the needs of the service users to help inform the future directions for commissioning staff wellbeing services and service design.

About Keeping Well Southeast London

Our Healthier Southeast London ICS set up the Keeping Well South East London (KWSEL) portal, which is a health and wellbeing online platform available to health and care staff. KWSEL is a partnership between the Improving Access to Psychological Therapies (IAPT) Services provided by South London and Maudsley NHS Foundation Trust (SLaM), Oxleas NHS Foundation Trust (Oxleas), and Bromley Healthcare and Mind (Bexley). Keeping Well SEL support is available to all staff delivering health and care services across SEL. This includes a universal offer through a digital portal which includes access to self-help resources, self-assessment, live chat and a community forum.

Participating in the project

We would like to invite you to consider taking part in the project to share your perspective and experience of health and wellbeing initiatives and Employee Assistance Programmes available in SEL.

The project uses a mixed-methods approach with data collection taking place online and face to face over two phases. The first phase includes a whole programme evaluation engaging with health and social care staff. Our second phase focuses on the evaluation of individual health and wellbeing programmes. There are different ways that you may wish to participate in:
